Concept Art Surfaces For Hitman 6

If you’ve already cleared every mission in Hitman: Absolution on the highest difficulty setting without the aid of that silly Predator vision non-sense, then you’re in luck as Square Enix understands the potential and wide reach of the series.  Even though IO Interactive may have just wrapped up work on the fifth entry in the Hitman series, which has received a solid reception thus far, Square Enix Montreal has been tasked to handle the sixth entry in the Hitman franchise, presumably for a possible late 2013 release.

Square Enix Expands Montreal Team + Opens New Studio (Interesting Hitman News Inside)

Things are going good for Square Enix ever since the company bought the remnants of Eidos back in 2009.  Unlike most mergers or major acquisitions, Square Enix didn’t cannibalize what was left of Eidos but instead decided to nurture the company and make it an integral part of the Western centric goals that Square Enix has.  With the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution being a success for both Square Enix and the team at Eidos Montreal, Square Enix has revealed their plans to strengthen the development team in Montreal as well as what the future holds for the team.

This isn’t really breaking news per say as it more or so falls in line with how cool certain contests can be yet at the same time being wholly ridiculous.  In an attempt to further hype up Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which is coming out in August, Square Enix is throwing one of those fancy video game contests that have been present since the SNES days.  Like Deus Ex itself, the contest Square Enix is throwing is rather impressive and is far from being normal, mainly because you have the chance to win a bionic arm.
