Hitman GO probably isn't what fans expected (or wanted) from a new Hitman title, but it's what they're getting. Developed with a small team, Square Enix Montreal explains some of the details for this upcoming mobile turn-based strategy title.
Hitman GO is a turn-based strategy game with beautifully rendered diorama-style set pieces. You will strategically navigate fixed spaces on a grid to avoid enemies and take out your target or infiltrate well-guarded locations. You really have to think about each move and all the Hitman tools of the trade you would expect are included; disguises, distractions, sniper rifles and even 47ís iconic Silverballers.
We developed the game with a small core team, which allowed us to iterate fast, come up with solutions more easily and embrace a development style that felt very fresh for us. When we pitched this slightly leftfield concept to the team at IOI, they absolutely loved it. Now, Hitman GO is almost ready for launch and you might even read about it online in the coming weeks as we do some testing to make sure itís all working properly before we launch it globally.
Don't worry, you crazy Hitman fanatics, there are still more traditional games coming in the Hitman franchise.
