“This partnership with Epic has given us the freedom to create the game exactly as we imagined,” states IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak, “for our fans and for our community uncompromised.”
Additionally, the trailer showcases all the new opportunities to execute your perfect assassination. A beautiful showcase of the map of Thornbridge Manor in Dartmoor, England.
Initially owned by Square Enix, IO has long since separated from the publisher. In fact, Hitman 3 will be the first in the series to be self-published. Hitman 3’s Epic Games exclusive deal will surely dishearten some gamers, but Epic is going all out especially with their recent free games. It’s been confirmed that data of Hitman 2 from Steam will carry over.
Finally, to rev up those old assassin instincts and regrow the excitement, the 2016 Hitman reboot will be free to keep on the Epic Store; August 27 to September 3.
