Hitman and Hitman II will both be playable within Hitman III 

IO Interactive has revealed Hitman 3, the company’s first full game which the studio will self publish. Hitman 3 is due to release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 in January 2020, finishing off the Hitman “World of Assassination” trilogy. 

Owners of Hitman and Hitman II will be able to play the levels of all three games through Hitman III, making the games platform for the entire trilogy. This will allow Hitman and Hitman II to benefit from Hitman III’s engine upgrade, integrate Hitman III’s progression system into these older titles and enables the areas within these older games to be replayed with items and game mechanics from Hitman III. 

    IO Interactive is proud and excited to announce HITMAN 3, the next game from IO Interactive. It makes us smile just reading that out loud. Here’s the brand new Announcement Trailer for you to enjoy. 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. HITMAN 3 will be available in January 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC. Death Awaits.  

Hitman 3 will contain six locations at launch, and today IO Interactive has confirmed that the first of these locations is Dubai. Below is a trailer which showcases the location in-engine, giving gamers an idea of what to expect from the game visually. 

At this time, it is unknown how Hitman 3 will be enhanced for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. New graphical features and a 60 FPS framerate target are possible, but so far, IO Interactive has been silent on this matter.
