Square Enix is aiming to have a large presence at E3 this year. Not only do they have their own conference, they have games like Tomb Raider, Deus Ex and Final Fantasy to show. The one game they haven’t really spoken about is the known in-development Hitman – which IO Interactive confirmed a few months back. Could it be their secret ace in the sleeve?
A decrypted secret invitation suggests so. Yesterday IGN received an invitation for a secret Square Enix party that they’re co-hosting (right now, I’m as confused as you honestly), which was set against a background of the Atlantic Ocean and a few continents. That was that apparently, until someone took the image and compared it to another piece of media on the Hitman website.
Another image taken from the Hitman website bears a striking resemblance to the one on the invitation – primarily on where the focus is on the world map. It could be a coincidence, but we all know that it rarely happens to be one in this industry. IO Interactive have been working on their new Hitman for a while, so Square Enix might feel that it’s time to show the world what Agent 47 has been getting up to.
We’ll only know for sure at the show though, which kicks off two weeks from today. Personally, I’m really hoping for a proper look at the next-generation of Hitman – even if it’s just to see Agent 47’s bald, tattooed, dildo-selling head again.
