With Hitman 3, IO Interactive has announced the next episode of the well-known stealth action game series. It concludes the large-scale trilogy "World of Assassination" and lets you slip into the role of Agent 47 again. The first trailer and some screenshots are in the message.
There have been rumors about another episode of the Hitman series for several months. At yesterday's big PlayStation event, the development studio IO Interactive finally let the cat out of the bag: The team is currently working feverishly on Hitman 3, which is supposed to be the end of the trilogy "World of Assassination". The release is planned for both the PC and the PlayStation and Xbox consoles – including the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X. The developers are targeting January 2021 as the time window for the release.

In Hitman 3, you once again take on the role of Agent 47, who embarks on a dangerous mission with his long-lost friend Lucas Gray. This leads to a total of half a dozen different locations, which will pose some major challenges for him. Fortunately, he gets support from his confidante Diana Burnwood. In addition, the developers promise that Agent 47 will be able to interact with its immediate environment in completely new ways – however, no specific details are known yet. The agent can of course dress up again, set traps and cause "accidents" to distract his target persons. Furthermore, it should be possible to adopt advances and locations from the predecessor Hitman 2. The full campaign will be playable at launch.
The just released trailer gives you a first taste of the story and the basic atmosphere of Hitman 3, which you can find below this message. There are also some screenshots that we have put in our online gallery for you.
