As part of the Hitman Universe, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows introduces a brand new story. In the concealed world of assassination, where a new criminal network threatens global stability, The Shadows is the story of Soji, Kiya, Kolzak, Knight, and Stone, a group of highly skilled snipers. In order to eliminate this threat, Diana Burwood and the International Contract Agency (ICA) activate Initiative 426, aka The Shadows.
It is crucial that players are creative, untraceable, and meticulous. In order to take down high-level international targets and build their reputation, they must strike in secret, manipulate their enemies, and use their environment to their advantage.
Although Hitman Sniper: The Shadows builds on the fundamentals of Hitman Sniper, it takes place in a separate fictional universe and is not a sequel to that game. It sits comfortably between a Hitman Sniper and a Hitman Sniper Premium game, adding an entirely new narrative, cast, and gameplay experience to the game, said Square Enix Montréal executive producer Dominic Allaire.
This free-to-play game is due for release on iOS and Android in 2021. In the coming months, we’ll unveil more exciting updates.
