Hitman 3 DLC could be a ‘reinvention’ of existing locations

Must read


While Hitman 3 officially launched with the aim of ending the World of Assassination trilogy, IO Interactive plans to develop a DLC that reinvents existing locations. The player, Hitman 3 executive producer Forest Swartout Large explained this, although the studio is developing a new James Bond game, he’s “continually working on Hitman, so we’re already looking to the future.”

IO Interactive has multiple teams, and at least one will continue to support Hitman 3 with post-launch fixes and DLCs. However, Large cautions that it likely won’t include new levels like the Bank of New York level from Hitman 2 or Haven Island. Instead, the team seeks to use “existing locations and reinvent them, twist them”.“We’re definitely going to do DLC, but we haven’t defined what it is,” Large said. “I think right now we’re not looking for new maps like the bank and the island. We’re more looking to use the existing slots and reimagine them, twist them. And this time around we can use the whole trilogy. We can look back at the Hitman 2016 maps, the Hitman 2 maps – we have all the locations. “

In our Hitman 3 test, we said, “Rich, rewarding, and highly replayable, Hitman 3 is a great installment of IO’s idiosyncratic yet highly regarded stealth series. The fundamentals haven’t changed since 2016 but its outstanding card collection makes it a version refined, reliable and robust curtain closer to the current Hitman trilogy. “

Hitman 3 has already paid off its costs within a week, So it’s no surprise that IO Interactive wants to continue supporting it.
