The sneaky devils at Siliconera have uncovered a trademark suggesting that Square-Enix is really looking to push the Hitman franchise into the limelight. The acquisition of “Hitman: Profession” could mean that another Square-Enix studio could be at the helm of early development for another Hitman game. Or it could just be something completely different, or maybe just related to Hitman: Absolution.
For those unaware, Hitman: Absolution was revealed earlier in 2011 and it looks better than ever. While we’re all excited to be strangling unsuspecting baddies with piano-wire, let’s just hope this flow of Hitman property can retain quality rather than feeling like it’s being shoved down our throats.
