Hitman 3 is not in development. To deny the news that emerged yesterday from the NoClip documentary “The Fall & Rise of Hitman”, dedicated to the IO Interactive series, it was the author of the same, Danny Odwyer, who explained on twitter the meaning of what was said in the movie from Hakan Abrak.
In fact, Abrak spoke of a planned episode at the time of the reboot of the series, but he never spoke of ongoing development. The series was conceived as a trilogy, but for now it is not certain that Hitman 3 is one of the new projects in progress at the IO Interactive studios in Copenhagen.
We are facing the classic collective misunderstanding. This does not exclude that sooner or later we will play Hitman 3, but only that what was said in the NoClip documentary is not an announcement. After all, what has always been planned becomes reality. The arrival of Hitman 3 on the market is certainly bound to the numbers made by the second chapter, for which IO Interactive is still producing content.
Before leaving you, we remind you that Hitman and Hitman 2 are available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
For the record, our document never said Hitman 3 was in development, only that was planned, and they were considering the episodic model for it. The only thing we confirmed was that of a new study which sounds like a new IP.
