According to senior game designer Richard Knight’s LinkedIn profile, the next and current gen re-imagining by Square Enix Montreal of the Hitman series had been secretly cancelled last year. The profile lists the title as “Hitman Project (Next-Gen Consoles/Current Gen/PC) — Canceled.” 

Knight’s colleagues designer Heath Smith and network engineer Anthony Pressacco LinkedIn profiles suggest that the game would of included both first and third person sequences, leaderboard support and microtransactions.

Smith’s profile also features an unrevealed AAA third person action adventure title exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which is possibly the new Deus Ex entry in development at Eidos Montreal.

We’ll update as soon as the fate of the ‘next gen’ Hitman is confirmed.
