"Top Secret" GTTV Episode Being Filmed – For Unannounced Hitman Game?

Joel Goodling, GameTrailers TV producer, tweeted a little message today hinting at something mysterious and “top secret” being filmed for an upcoming show with Geoff Keighley. He said the following:

Top secret @GTTVshow shoot today in Montreal w/ @geoffkeighley. Any guesses?

Along with that Tweet was the following image:

There are a lot, and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT of game developers in Montreal. Currently, there are quite a few that are currently developing games but one stuck out in my mind.

Last year, we reported on some plans that Square-Enix had for the Hitman franchise. We already know that the current Hitman game in development is Hitman Absolution from IO Interactive. However, Square-Enix recently set up a new studio in Montreal. Details revealed in our report stated that  “the first project at Square Enix Montréal will be to work on a new premium quality game in the award-winning HITMAN franchise.”

In addition, a “major Hitman announcement” is supposed to be revealed this week on Thursday May 10, 2012. This coincides with the regular day that GTTV airs weekly. I wouldn’t be so quick to assume that what is being filmed for GTTV today, will air as quickly as Thursday of this week especially since the main focus will be on the upcoming Transformers game, Fall of Cybertron, but it’s not completely impossible either.

Of course, this is just one theory that popped up in my mind. I could be completely wrong for all we know. As I stated before, there are a lot of game developers in Montreal and we don’t know for sure which one the GTTV team stopped by.

Either way, something big is coming up for the show sometime in the future. With only a month before E3, we can expect to see a lot of big reveals coming soon as well. What do you think they are teasing? Is it the new Hitman game or something else? Sound off in the comments below!

  1.  So, there’s a HITMAN game that hasn’t been released yet and there’s development on another one? What gives?

    • With Square-Enix’s Japanese studios losing steam, it looks like more eggs are being put into Western baskets and IPs.

    •  if this is true, It’s probably due to the fact that Absolution is straying away from being a normal Hitman game, and taking the series in a different direction. I would imagine this game being more in tune with all the other games in the series. Or maybe even a portable game?

  2. the may 10th announcement is just the preorder sniper challenge being playable now, not a new game! considering its an IO interactive announcment not a Square Enix Montréal announcement, do your research better :L

    • Nobody said the May 10th announcement through the Hitman site was for the new game. ;)

      That was mentioned as a side note. In addition to IO’s Absolution, there is an unannounced Hitman game being developed by SE Montreal. As we pointed out in the article, we do not know if that is what GTTV filmed or when the announcement for what they were filming, will come.

      Stay tuned!
