Hitman 3’s DLC may be a ‘Reimagining’ of existing sites

While Hitman 3 has been officially launched with the aim of ending the World of Assassination Trilogy, IO Interactive plans to develop DLC that rethinks existing locations. Speaking to TheGamer, Hitman 3 producer Forest Swartout Large explained that although the studio is developing a new James Bond game, it “works continuously on Hitman, so we’re already looking to the future.”

IO Interactive has several teams, and at least one will continue to support Hitman 3 with patches after launch and DLC. Large warns, however, that it is unlikely to include new levels such as Hitman 2s New York bank level or Haven Island. Instead, the team seeks to use “existing locations and imagine them again and twist them.”“We will definitely do some DLC, but we have not defined what it is,” Large said. “I think at the moment we are not looking at new maps like the bank and the island. We are looking more at using existing locations and imagining them again, twisting them. And this time we can use the whole trilogy. We can look back at Hitman 2016 cards, Hitman 2 cards – we have all the rankings. “

In our Hitman 3 review, we said “Rich, rewarding and very playable, Hitman 3 is an excellent part of IO’s idiosyncratic but much-loved stealth series. Basically has not changed since 2016, but its collection of excellent cards provides a refined , reliable and robust curtain closer to the current Hitman trilogy. “

Hitman 3 has already reimbursed its costs in a week, so it’s no surprise that IO Interactive will continue to support it.
