Game companies IO Interactive and Epic Games recently announced that upcoming video game sequel Hitman 3 will launch exclusively on Epic Games Store for PC.
When the third title of the series launches in January 2021, it will be an exclusive for Epic Games Store. To celebrate this, the online store has also announced that the 2016 critically-acclaimed game Hitman will be free to download for players and keep forever.
HITMAN 3 is the dramatic conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy that has Agent 47 returning for the most important contracts of his career. The game takes players around the world on a globetrotting adventure to sprawling sandbox locations. IO Interactive revealed one of those locations today — Dartmoor, England’s Thornbridge Manor — in a brand-new trailer.
“Self-publishing HITMAN 3 is a big step for IO Interactive in achieving our highly ambitious goals as an independent studio,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO of IO Interactive. “Furthermore, this partnership with Epic has given us the freedom to create the game exactly as we imagined, for our fans and for our community uncompromised,”
“For our long-term fans that have supported us on the World of Assassination journey, we’re happy to have mastery and location carryover from their existing progress into HITMAN 3 on Epic Games Store.”
