Square Enix trademarks Hitman: Profession

Square Enix Montreal's new Hitman?

The next Hitman might be called Hitman: Profession. Square Enix trademarked the name in Europe on Thursday (December 22), last week.

Square Enix opened a Montreal studio in November, which it said would work on a new Hitman, separate from the Io-produced Hitman: Absolution, still in development at the studio. Square has yet to formally announce the name of that project, though it’s possible today’s newly-discovered trademark could be it.

Thanks, Siliconera.

      @Spen: Sorry, Spence. Legitimately forgot to include it (not home this week, so been sort of rushing through news posts). You know we always source your trademark finds!
