IO Interactive has announced that Hitman 3’s PC version will launch exclusively on the Epic Games Store.
“Self-publishing Hitman 3 is a big step for IO Interactive in achieving our highly ambitious goals as an independent studio. 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,” IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak said in a statement.
“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.”
Unlike the previous entry, Hitman 3 won’t feature a multiplayer component.
From August 27 through September 3, players can grab a free digital copy of Hitman 2016 from the Epic Games Store.
Hitman 3 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X, Stadia, and PlayStation VR.
It’s currently slated for a January 2021 release.
