Hitman Sniper: The Shadows game was finally announced at E3 2021 and to be launched this year. It is a free-to-play action game by Square Enix. The development was delayed due to their plans to improve the game’s graphics and to optimize the game for both Android and iOS so that they perform the same.
Interestingly, the game will also come with a multiplayer mode where players can compete with each other online.
The game will be a spin-off of the Hitman series and is stated as an extension of the Hitman Universe. Instead of Agent 47 who is seen on Hitman, you will see a new group of assassins called Soji, Kiya, Kolzak, Knight, and Stone who are activated by the International Contract Agency (ICA) after the rise of a new criminal network.
“We were given an amazing opportunity to extend the Hitman universe, not only by delivering a fresh take on the world, but also a cast of new playable characters,” said Fahad Khan, lead game designer of the game. “Our new protagonists all have unique backstories and different styles that could turn into player style, amplifying their play experience, creativity, and strategic choices when approaching a contract.”
