Hitman Absolution App pulled Square Apologises

It seems Square have been under fire from enraged Facebook users over a Hitman Absolution App which allowed friends to place virtual hits on each other for things like being a fashion victim or some other defect such as cheating on a partner. However, it seems it was all too much for some, and so Square have bowed down to some sort of consensus and removed the app entirely.  They also released the following apologetic statement.

“Earlier today we launched an app based around Hitman: Absolution that allowed you to place virtual hits on your Facebook friends. Those hits would only be viewable by the recipient and could only be sent to people who were confirmed friends.

We were wide of the mark with the app and following feedback from the community we decided the best thing to do was remove it completely and quickly. This we’ve now done.


We’re sorry for any offence caused by this.”

Hmmm, did someone think it real, did someone place a hit on Obama, was the FBI involved? Who knows.
