Hitman 3 Year 2 starts on January 20th, 2022 and there is a lot of new content to look forward to. Across Hitman 3 there are several maps and locations that Agent 47 visits, each with its own challenges and rewards. At some time this year, you will be able to play a brand new map and the new tasks that come with it. From the release date to its location, here is everything we know so far about the new map.

There has been nothing confirmed about the release date, but we can expect this map to drop at some point during 2022. With all of the major additions coming in January and Spring, it's possible the map will be held back for the latter half of the year.
The official name of the map has not been confirmed, but in this ioi blog post, you can see it is codenamed "Rocky". This is a possible reference to the rocky terrain and cliffs that we got a glimpse of at the end of the Year 2 reveal stream.
Is It a Day or Night Map?
From what can be seen in the reveal stream, there is a good chance that this map will be set at night. This can be a big advantage in sneaking between targets as you can use the cover of darkness to slip away silently.
Again, nothing has been revealed yet about the exact location and this is just speculation. The map could potentially be set on the coastal edge of a tropical region or on an entire tropical island. The floodlights that can be seen illuminating the beach and the bridge, along with the watch-tower on the cliffs, suggest that this is somewhere that visitors are not welcome. The structures that can be briefly seen on the map are similar to that of a military complex or settlement which means Agent 47 could be going up against some serious enemies.
We will update this page as we learn more about the new map.
A new map is not only the new addition to Hitman 3 in 2022. If you are a PC gamer, then take a look at our article on when PC VR will be released.
