Hitman 3 will be expanded with DLCs. You shouldn’t expect new locations. However, IO Interactive wants to reinvent existing locations.
The developer IO Interactive has confirmed that Hitman 3 will be equipped with downloadable content in the foreseeable future. But you shouldn’t expect too much. At the same time, the company emphasized that the post-launch plans do not include any new locations.
Still, the studio wants to surprise you. Forest Swartout Large, the executive producer of the game, told TheGamer that the studio will try to “reimagine” existing locations for the Hitman 3 post-launch content.
“We are definitely going to be doing some DLC, but we haven’t defined what that is. I think for now we are not looking at new maps like the bank and the island,” said Forest Swartout Large.
Rather, it is a matter of using existing locations and reinterpreting them or changing them. “We’re more looking at using existing locations and reimagining them, twisting them. And this time around, we can use the whole trilogy. We can look back at Hitman 2016 maps, Hitman 2 maps – we have all the locations,” the studio continues.
It is of course not a big surprise that Hitman 3 is equipped with download expansions. After all, the new title about Agent 47 is a huge success for IO Interactive and the development costs were recovered within a few days. The studio is also working on Project 007, which is still a while in coming.
Hitman 3 was released on January 20, 2021, for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
