Developers and all those in the UK games industry invited to prove their gaming talent

Square Enix and MCV on the hunt for UK sectors’s ultimate assassin

UK developers, retailers and trade execs, publishers and media are set to compete for prizes in a bid to find out who is the ultimate assassin in Hitman: Sniper Challenge.

Develop – with sister publication MCV, has teamed up with Square Enix for a series of mini-leagues centred around Hitman: Sniper Challenge, the addictive downloadable experience available to those who pre-order November’s Hitman: Absolution.

From now until the game’s launch MCV and Square Enix will run monthly challenges for sectors of the UK industry, including retail, publishing, development, and the media, with a top Agent named in each category – plus a final ‘best of the best’.

We will be publishing weekly updates in MCV and on as to the progress of each would-be Hitman.

Prizes include some sweet gadgets, Hitman goodies, not to mention the secret star prize – plus of course, buckets of glory, as winners get to prove to friends and colleagues just how good they are at video games.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, send an email to and we’ll let you know what you need to take part.

Entrants must be based in the UK and work in the games industry.
