Hitman Sniper Challenge Trademarked, Is A Third Hitman Game In Development?


hitman0Square Enix might have three Hitman games in development. There is Hitman: Absolution from IO Interactive and possibly Hitman: Profession. Siliconera unearthed a trademark for the potential title in December.


Add Hitman Sniper Challenge to the list. Square Enix Europe filed a trademark for the term in Europe. We’ve seen Agent 47 use a sniper rifle in previous games, but judging by the title this sounds something like Silent Scope set in the Hitman universe. Maybe it’s a mobile Hitman game? Or is this the Hitman project Square Enix Montreal is developing? In either case, Square Enix has big plans for the Hitman franchise.
