IO Interactive announced their final entry for the Hitman trilogy at PlayStation’s future of gaming event. The game is titled Hitman 3 and once again features Agent 47 in a series of international locations. The title is set for a January 2021 release.
“Hitman 3 is the dramatic conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy and takes players around the world on a globetrotting adventure to sprawling sandbox locations. Agent 47 returns as a ruthless professional for the most important contracts of his entire career.
Supported by his Agency handler, Diana Burnwood, 47 joins forces with his long-lost friend Lucas Grey. Their ultimate mission is to eliminate the partners of Providence, but they are forced to adapt as their hunt intensifies. When the dust settles, 47 and the world he inhabits will never be the same again.”
The first trailer for the game shows Agent 47 at “the top of the world” in Dubai, climbing the side of a very large skyscraper.
“Let’s talk locations. Every mission location in Hitman 3 is meticulously detailed and packed full of creative opportunities. We’ve made sure that players will have unrivalled freedom to complete their objectives and the game world will react to everything they do. All of this is made possible by our award-winning Glacier technology, which powers Hitman 3’s immersive game world to offer unparalleled player choice and replayability.”
The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Players can also look forward to importing progression and maps from previous games into Hitman 3. All three games combined will include over 20 sandbox maps for players to explore, and presumably over 10 sniper locations.
This will be the first Hitman game in the series developed and self-published by IO interactive, as previous games have been published by Eidos Montreal and Square Enix.
