Hitman: Absolution out September, say retailers

Online listings aren't waiting for Square's announcement

Online retailers seemingly got tired of waiting for Square Enix to announce a release date for Hitman: Absolution, and taken it upon themselves to list a September outing.


Both Zavvi and HotUKDeals have listed the game for a September 17 release, while ShopTo have gone with September 24.

An official release date was expected earlier this week when the publisher delivered a 'major Hitman announcement' that it had previously teased.

Instead, the announcement turned out to be a spin-off game titled Hitman: Sniper Challenge, which will be offered as a pre-order bonus for Absolution.
