Gosh, that was quick. Before any other sites had even picked up on this one, Square have removed the app. Links from it now reroute to the main Hitman page, and previously sent death threats no longer work.
Square have issued a statement apologising for the app. The full statement is at the bottom of the post.
Square Enix aren't having a brilliant Winter. With profits pointing downward
, and Hitman a bit of a stinker
, they surely must be on the phone with the Humble Bundle folks, trying to follow THQ
. But everything's going to improve with their latest marketing campaign for the disappointing baldie killer! 'SQUARE ENIX,' says the email that's just arrived in my inbox, 'WANTS YOU TO PUT A HIT ON YOUR FRIENDS'. Ahaha! Threaten to murder your chums! And mock them for their looks, or the size of their breasts or penis!
