Hitman Game Not Cancelled

GameSpot has a correction from Square Enix saying the upcoming Hitman game has not been cancelled, contrary to a report that emerged today. The publisher clarifies that a AAA Hitman is still in the works at IO Interactive separate from the mobile game being developed by Square Enix Montreal:
"There's a bit of confusion around the Hitman projects currently in development at Square Enix-owned studios and so we wanted to take the time to clarify what each studio is working on to clear up some of this confusion. Io-Interactive is developing a new, AAA Hitman game that will be coming to PC and next-gen consoles and Square Enix Montreal is fully focused on mobile development of games some of which are related to the Hitman franchise," the representative said. "We look forward to sharing more details about these titles later this year."

This screams for a "I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING" dog sitting in Square Enix's main office meme.

You know, you dont have to use it

The game is balanced around it though. You can't really not use the small, linear levels either.

Despite that the previous installment fell well short of Blood Money, this news still gets a "Yay!" from me. So, "YAY!".

You cannot use AAA for other than batteries!

They don't need to tell me a game is "high quality" or "AAA title", we all get they are trying to publish something good. Anyone who's been playing games for a while, know what's written on the box isn't to be trusted (or webpage).

Good news. I can only hope that IO learned from its mistakes with Absolution and returns to proper, Blood Money-esque form. At the very least, the increased memory of the new consoles should ensure that the levels aren't so linear and divided... hopefully.

Not sure publishers understand that AAA means anymore.

I will never buy another Hitman PC game using their garbage savepoint system again. I feel like I wasted hours replaying pieces of levels over and over again. I hate that!
