We won’t have to wait too long to get back into the stylish suit of one Agent 47 as the final game in the trilogy will be coming to the PS4 and PS5 next year.
The announcement comes from Travis Barbour, Senior Community Manager of IO Interactive via the PlayStation Blog:
Here is an overview of the announcement:
Hitman 3 is the dramatic conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy and will put you back into the shoes (and stylish suit) of Agent 47, a ruthless professional assassin who must take on the most important contracts of his career. The stakes are high and when all is said and done, Agent 47 and the world around him will never be the same again.
Hitman 3 will take you around the world to exotic and luxurious locations that are packed with creative opportunities. Your ultimate goal is to explore these meticulously crafted locales and figure out exactly how you want to eliminate your targets. You’ll have complete freedom to take disguises, create “accidents,” interact with other characters and blend into the crowd to watch your master plan unfold – or gloriously fail. That’s also part of the charm!
Players will be glad to know that locations and progression from Hitman 2 will be carried over and best of all, the entire trilogy will be playable from within Hitman 3.
Hitman 3 is scheduled to launch in January 2021 for the PlayStation 4, 5, and other platforms.
