Another year in the World of Assassination
We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of Hitman 3, the third entry in the Hitman reboot continuum. And this week, we’re going to learn a little more about what’s still in store for Agent 47 with Hitman 3 Year 2.
IO Interactive is hosting a stream this Thursday, Jan. 13 for Hitman 3 Year 2. The show will go live at 9 a.m. ET / 6 a.m. PT on YouTube. You can find that linked here as well.

The pre-recorded video stream will run for about 15 minutes. Expect announcements, reveals, and footage of new content coming to the world of Hitman.
IO Interactive has already talked a little bit about what’s coming in the next year for Hitman 3, and it looks pretty exciting. Hitman 3 Year 2 is set to include VR support for the PC side of things, as well as ray tracing. New maps and storylines are also in the works. And the Elusive Target Arcade will offer a new permanent mode, as an extension of IO’s Elusive Target setup that added a lot of post-launch content to old maps over the last few entries.
Hitman 3 by itself was already pretty good, and as a whole collection across all three games, IO’s Hitman series is a wealth of disguises and assassinations. It’s nice to see the studio still support more Hitman content, even with its Bond game on the horizon. Here’s hoping for some great new vistas and beautiful paradises to wear ridiculous costumes in.
