Details
Hitman 3 (stylized as HITMAN III) is an upcoming stealth game developed and published by IO Interactive. The game will be the eighth main installment in the Hitman series and the third and final installment of the World of Assassination trilogy, following Hitman (2016) and Hitman 2 (2018), in celebration of the series' 20th anniversary. It is set to be released for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia (under the title Hitman: World of Assassination), and Nintendo Switch on 20 January 2021.

Gameplay

Like its predecessors, Hitman 3 is a stealth game played from a third-person perspective and players once again assume control of assassin Agent 47. In the game, 47 will travel to various locations and carry out contracted assassinations, continuing the story of the last two games. The base game features six new locations: Dubai, Dartmoor, Berlin, Chongqing, Mendoza and an epilogue set in the Carpathian Mountains, Romania. Players who owned Hitman (2016) and Hitman 2 (2018) will be able to import maps, levels and their progress into Hitman 3.

The game will feature PlayStation VR compatibility on the PlayStation 4 version, with support for PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility. The VR functionality will also retroactively apply to levels imported from the previous two entries. Unlike Hitman 2, there will be no multiplayer modes, with Sniper Assassin being purely single player, and Ghost Mode being removed entirely.


Development

The game was announced on 11 June 2020 at the PlayStation 5 reveal event. Developers have said that the game will be "a lot more mature, serious and darker" than previous installments in the trilogy. IO Interactive will self-publish the game when it releases on 20 January 2021 for Windows via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and streaming service Stadia. It will also be available on Nintendo Switch in the form of a cloud based game. This marks the first time a Hitman game was released for a Nintendo platform in almost 19 years; the last game to be released was a port of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin for the GameCube in 2003.
