Hitman: Sniper Challenge outed by Game Informer

Tuesday, 8th May 2012 08:16 GMT By Johnny Cullen

An ad in the latest Game Informer has outed Hitman: Sniper Challenge, suggesting the spin-off is likely to be the big announcement teased yesterday from IO this coming Thursday.

The Sniper Challenge spin-off will be available to those who pre-order Absolution at GameStop.

It’ll offer a replayable sniper mission, an exclusive riffle with upgradeables that’ll in all likelihood be in Absolution and prizes for the best snipers. Those prize haven’t been detailed yet.

IO confirmed yesterday it would have a massive announcement for this coming Thursday, May 10. It’s all but likely this is to be it.

Square had previously trademarked the Sniper Challenge name back in January.

Hitman Absolution launches later this year for PS3, 360 and PC.

    That is just pathetic…
    Even more pathetic then DLC on the game DVD…

    Choosing a single retailer for such thing and on top of that in this case they exclude people like me from Europe and the rest of the world where there are no Gamestop shops. Things like this enrage me and make me not buy the game even more then the DLC on disk.

    I’m pretty sure certain non-US retailers will get this as their own exclusives.

    That said, it really is pathetic. Really REALLY lame move
