Square Enix Montreal has offered the first full look at its upcoming Hitman mobile game.
First announced in a cinematic teaser in March as Hitman Sniper Assassins, Square Enix spent some time during its E3 2021 ‘Presents’ stream to fully unveil the game, which is now simply titled Hitman Sniper.
The game tells an original story set in the Hitman universe focused on The Shadows, a group of highly-skilled assassins tasked with taking out a new criminal network. Diana Burnwood, the handler of main Hitman protagonist Agent 47, is responsible for overseeing The Shadows.
Square Enix Montreal says the new Hitman Sniper draws inspiration from its 2014 game Hitman: Sniper but is otherwise completely separate. In particular, the new Hitman Sniper will also have players scoping out a distant area to manipulate the environment and pick off their targets.
Additionally, Hitman Sniper will have a cast of five brand-new characters — the innocent-turned-criminal Stone, the charming but calculated Knight; the stoic Kolzak; the petite but vengeful Soji and the sole survivor veteran Kiya.

Hitman Sniper will launch later this year as a free-to-play title on Android and iOS. Specific in-app purchases have not yet been detailed.
