Latest News - Pre-Load

Players on PlayStation or Xbox platforms will be able to pre-load the game, ready to start playing as soon as it hits unlock time.

PC Players won't be able to pre-load, and instead will have to begin downloading the game once it unlocks at 8am EST/1pm GMT.

Release Date

Hitman 3 will launch on Wednesday January 20th.

Its a bit unusual for a game to launch on Wednesday, typically the release dates are either Tuesday or Friday.

But we have started seeing a lot more games release outside of these days.

Perhaps with worldwide releases and a digital marketplace, there isn't as much importance on the day of the week anymore.

Platforms

Hitman 3 will be releasing on both next gen systems, the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, as well as the last gen PS4 and Xbox One.

The game will also be seeing a port on the Nintendo Switch via Cloud Gaming, as well as on Google Stadia, another streaming platform.

Finally it will be releasing on PC via Epic Games Store.

No Steam Version?

Despite Hitman 1 and 2 being on Steam, Hitman 3 will be releasing exclusively on Epic Games Store.

Hitman 1 is on EGS too, however Hitman 2 currently isn't.

There is also an issue where players won't be able to bring their progress and levels from Hitman 2 over to 3, instead having to repurchase them.

IO Interactive have stated that they are looking into solutions for this issue, so hopefully that means we won't have to repurchase the game if we want the World of Assassination Trilogy all in one game.
