Deus Ex Go, Just Cause Go, Life is Strange Go Domains Registered
Go! Go! Go!
Website domains for Just Cause Go, Life is Strange Go, Thief Go, and Deus Ex Go have been registered, sparking speculation that Square Enix may adapt these properties into turn-based games, as it has done with Hitman.
The registrations were spotted by a NeoGAF user, who noted that CSC Domain Tools was used to make these registrations. Square Enix has previously used this for all its domain registrations, suggesting they may be real and not faked by a third-party.
The registration of domains does not necessarily mean these games are in development, and could instead be Square Enix speculatively securing domains.
A Square Enix Montreal representative has told GameSpot it is "standard practice to register domain names in case there are any future plans for these franchises."
The Go series of games launched with Hitman Go, which tasks players with moving Agent 47 around a board to bump off enemies. The game received critical acclaim and was praised for distilling the Hitman gameplay experience to its essentials and adapting them for the turn-based genre. Hitman Go was nominated for GameSpot's Best Mobile Game of 2015 award.
Square Enix released Hitman Go: Definitive Edition for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC on February 23. It featured upgraded visuals and contained all post-launch content released for the original mobile version.
Hitman Go was followed up by Lara Croft Go, which was also well liked.
"There's something special happening in Lara Croft Go, and it's hard to explain without getting your hands on it," a GameSpot preview reads. "It's the same Hitman Go magic, but with a twist that is unmistakably Tomb Raider-y in nature."
