Hitman screenshot from the Dubai map

While the future of the Hitman series looked remarkably grim at one point, IO Interactive has not only managed to persevere, but also take the time to improve upon the classic formula. Things are likely to get even better in the near future as the culmination of the entire World of Assassination trilogy, Hitman 3, will be making its way to PC and consoles on January 20, 2021!

Hitman 3 will bring with it six sizable new locations to explore, including places like Dubai, Berlin and Chongqing. Owners of the previous two games will also be to import those maps into Hitman 3, while Hitman 2 players in specific will also be able to carry over all of their unlocks and progression.

As for what exactly you might expect in terms of storytelling, that you can find out through the recently posted intro cinematic. Have a gander:

The final thing worth mentioning is that even though Hitman 3 is the finale of a trilogy, it will still function as a standalone game. Some of the story beats may be a little bit confusing if this is your first introduction to the series, though that shouldn't be too much of an issue as the story is mostly there to give context for all of your sneaking around across the world.

To learn more about Hitman 3, as well as to keep an eye on its upcoming launch, you should head on over to the official website. Until then, you might want to check out Hitman and Hitman 2 while they're still on sale over at Steam. Enjoy!
