Danish developer IO Interactive, the studio behind the Hitman franchise, announced plans to reveal a “new project” on Thursday, November 19 at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET.
The reveal of this new project will take place on the company’s official YouTube channel. In October 2019. IO Interactive announced a partnership with publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to create a game in a “new universe.” This game is said to be a “new console and PC gaming experience,” though IO Interactive has not detailed the project any further. It’s also worth mentioning that cult IO Interactive classic Freedom Fighters 2 has returned to PC.
IO Interactive’s next confirmed game, Hitman 3, is slated to launch on January 21, 2021 for Nintendo Switch (via cloud streaming), PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S / Series X. IO Interactive will offer free next-gen upgrades for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players but only for the digital version of the game.
Hitman 3 is making some changes to the established formula, including reworking Elusive Targets and cutting competitive multiplayer. The game will also give players access to all the previous two Hitman titles so long as you own them either digitally or physically.
