Hitman 3 development is a go, says IO
Hitman fans are a pretty excitable bunch. And given how awesome Agent 47 is, it’s easy to see why. Do you know what’s more awesome than a badass assassin though? A developer who supports their game with a slew of excellent content. And the future IOI has for the Hitman franchise has a lot of fans up in arms in the best way.
As part of the news break that the developer had this week to reveal the first of the new batch of content for Hitman 2, the developer also revealed the existence of the next game in the current series. “After 13 months of full-time support and content for Hitman 2 – at no additional cost (besides what we added through the Expansion Pass), we’re now at a place where we are looking increasingly to the future. In real terms, we’re moving more and more of the Hitman 2 team to join the next Hitman game, which is well underway,” the announcement revealed.
Agent 47 has been all over the world, so you can imagine that fans are pretty excited about a new game. But don’t let the announcement of another awesome sequel detail your attention, because IOI still has more in the tank for the current entry.
The developer will return with a preview of November’s DLC updates as part of IOI Monthly, scheduled for November 19th. Hitman 2 is available on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. If you’re keen on finding out what future plans IO has for the current game, watch the roadmap video below.
These future plans include a revival of older Hitman 2 Elusive Targets, “giving players another chance to earn any attached rewards and experience [they] might have missed the first time around.” Even more Elusive Targets and Escalation Contracts are planned throughout 2019 and beyond as well. In total, November will bring 10 total Featured Contracts, eight Escalation Contracts, six Challenge Packs, five item unlocks, two costumes and a Legacy Elusive Target for players to hunt. That’s a lot of killing.
Who knows, maybe ole St. Nick will return again this year.
