Square Enix says Sniper Assassins is coming to Android and iOS sometime in 2021.
While this isn’t much to go off yet, the fact that Square Enix Montreal is working on the game is definitely noteworthy. The Canadian developer is best known for its work on the Lara Croft, Deus Ex and Hitman Go games, which were all acclaimed for bringing the iconic franchises to mobile in unique ways.
The team’s last game was Deus Ex Go, which released in 2016.
During its recent Square Enix Presents presentation, Square Enix also unveiled a Space Invaders mobile AR game (co-developed by the Montreal team) and a cinematic trailer for Just Cause Mobile.
