Hitman Sniper The Shadows is coming to iOS and Android later in 2021, as part of Square Enix’s E3 2021 press conference.
The title was first announced back in March 2021 as Hitman Sniper Assassins, that working title has been dropped in favour of one representing the new team you’ll be playing as.
Square Enix Montreal said:
Hitman Sniper The Shadows offers an immersive and competitive sniper experience within the hidden world of assassination, where a new criminal network threatens global stability.
Diana Burnwood, and the International Contract Agency (ICA), activate Initiative 426, aka The Shadows, a team of highly-skilled assassins, to eliminate this threat. Featuring Hitman Sniper’s hallmarks of manipulating enemies and the environment to their advantage, as a member of The Shadows, players must take down high-level international targets, build their reputation, and evolve themselves into their own version of a Hitman Sniper.
There are five members of the Shadows, as follows:
- Stone: An innocent man with a criminal record, and a skillset worthy of a master assassin. Stone assumed a new identity and turned to assassination as a means of survival.
- Knight: A rugged survivalist, Knight is as charming as she is calculated. Infused with a healthy dose of anti-governmental propaganda, she takes great pride and pleasure in a well-executed head shot.
- Kolzak: A highly trained and skilled assassin who constantly refines his tradecraft. Preferring to remain in the shadows, he lets his reputation speak for itself.
- Soji: Despite her petite stature, Soji is a force to be reckoned with and her dedication cannot be questioned. Still grieving her brother’s murder, Soji channels her revenge-fuelled-rage down the barrel of her rifle.
- Kiya: A veteran of over twenty high-profile missions with the Anti-Terrorism Squad, Kiya is the sole survivor of his ATS squad’s massacre. With nothing left to lose, he pushes his limits on every contract. Kiya uses each shot to make the most impact.
