Hitman GO is a mobile, turn-based game in the works at Square Enix Montreal.


Based on the series staring Agent 47, the game is in development for mobile and tables and uses a gird-style map.

“Hitman GO is a turn-based strategy game with beautifully rendered diorama-style set pieces,” reads the official word on it. “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 47’s 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.”

Hitman GO is “almost ready for launch” according to Square.
