The next entry in the Hitman series will venture into the mobile space as a new strategy offering, Square Enix has announced.
Developed by a "small core team" at Square Enix Montreal, Hitman GO stands apart from the AAA action-adventure stealth franchise "while still [retaining] the essence of what a Hitman game is." The game will entirely turn-based and utilize diorama-style areas to navigate through.
"You will strategically navigate fixed spaces on a grid to avoid enemies and take out your target or infiltrate well-guarded locations," the official description reads.
"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."
No release date was mentioned for Hitman GO, but the developer states it’s "almost ready for launch" on both smartphones and tablets.
Hitman franchise developer IO Interactive is still working on the next major installment in the series as well.
