The Hitman Sniper Assassin rating surfaces but there is a problem; no one knows about the game in question. Via Korean and Australian rating boards, a major Hitman leak surfaces. This leak not only shows fans a potential rating for an unannounced game but it gives us a title too, Hitman Sniper Assassin.
The rating systems work differently in different countries. Video games are often submitted to rating systems long before announcement. This is due to lengthy approval processes to hit store shelves on the correct date in these countries. The title of the game is usually a secret at the publishers request, however, this time two popular rating systems made a hiccup. Hitman Sniper Assassin got to the rating systems February of 2018. The game will release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The Korean and Australian boards show that the next entry to the Hitman series is titled Hitman Sniper Assassin. With little actual confirmation, fans lean towards speculations.
Hitman Sniper Assassin Rating Board Hiccup Leads to Speculation
So, the previous Hitman game came out in episodic format. Much to fans dismay, levels for this game release months apart. Players drag along to either buy the next episode or wait to download it. A lot of fans show disappointment in the new system. They prefer the old formula of playing the entire game at once. The next game in the Hitman series may honor this request as it was dominate among fans.
But is Hitman Sniper Assassin a full game? Could it be an “extra addition” like Hitman Sniper Challenge? The link between the names suggest that the alleged unannounced game could be something similar to this stand-alone preview to previous entry, Hitman Absolution. Another link to this possibility it the similarity in announcement times. Hitman Sniper Challenge as announced with a teaser image on May 3rd, 2012 and fully revealed on May 10th 2012. Today, the day of the leak, May 1st, is very close to the original May 3rd teaser.
Regardless of the Hitman Sniper Assassin rating board leak, no official information about the title is out. So far, we only have speculation and hopes for an official announcement soon.
