Square Enix Montreal Reveals ‘Hitman: Sniper’, a More Traditional Stealth Action Game Than ‘Hitman GO’

Square Enix Montreal released the odd duck Hitman GO ($4.99) weeks ago, but they’re tackling the franchise once more with the just announced Hitman: Sniper. This takes a far more traditional approach to the stealthy franchise by being a game about sniping, but exclusively so, similar to the console game Hitman: Sniper Challenge. Levels are claimed to have multiple solutions with leaderboards to make it “massively competitive."

Unlike the premium Hitman GO, this will be a free-to-play game with in-app purchases for upgrades and quicker access to future levels. The teaser trailer above shows a few hints of what to expect: sniping and visuals similar to Hitman GO. No release date has been announced yet, but more details will be released next Wednesday at E3.
