Retailers suggest Hitman: Absolution coming September

A few choice online retailers have listed possible release dates for Hitman: Absolution, all of which suggest a mid-September launch.

MCV is telling us that Zavvi and HotUKDeals each list Square Enix’s upcoming third-person shooter as dropping September 17th, while ShopTo has the game coming a week later on the 24th.

Earlier this week, Square Enix teased an official release date reveal by saying a “major” announcement was coming soon for the title. That reveal turned out to be Hitman: Sniper Challenge, a spin-off game of some sort to Absolution which will be offered as a pre-order bonus for the game. The official reveal for Sniper Challenge is expected to come later today. 

Of course, with the publisher yet to announce any official release date for Agent 47’s latest outing, we’ll take these listings with an appropriately-sized grain of salt.
