IO Interactive Narrative Timeline **NOT COMPLETED** **NEW UPDATE**

#1

NOTE: THIS TIMELINE IS A CONCEPT THAT COMBINES BOTH THE HITMAN SERIES AND KANE AND LYNCH (SOON AFTER I FINISH THE HITMAN TIMELINE) IN WHICH I’M COINING THIS THE IO INTERACTIVE NARRATIVE TIMELINE. THE HITMAN FILMS WILL BE EXCLUDED SINCE THEY ARE CONSIDERED NONCANON. I WILL BE DOING DAILY UPDATES TO THE TIMELINE UNTIL I RUN OUT OF LORE AND UNTIL MORE DLC/GAMES GET RELEASED. I WILL BE USING SOURCES FROM THE ALREADY ESTABLISHED TIMELINE ON THE HITMAN FANDOM EXPANDING UPON THAT. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ISN’T A COPY AND PASTE OF THAT TIMELINE. THOUGH THAT TIME LINE HAS GREAT INFLUENCE ON THIS ONE THE ORIGINAL SOURCE HAS FLAWED INFORMATION THAT OVERLAPS OTHER EVENTS OF THE TIMELINE. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU SO I’D APPRECIATE FEEDBACK TOO!

Can you tell me, where was it stated that these were the canon way of completing missions. I must have missed it somewhere.

#3

I don’t know about Sanchez’s death, although the extensive cutscene strongly implies that it was meant to be the canon outcome.

As for the bar fight, NPC chatter in a later stage, the Streets of Hope I think, talks about the bar fight, meaning either another fight just like it happened just before or just after 47 was there, or he triggered the bar fight.

#4

My justification for using specific ways of approaching the assassinations and levels is by NPC Conversations and Cutscenes.

Sanchez has a cut scene during one of his assassination opportunities I will use that as the canon approach.

NPC’s talk about a bald man fighting people at The Great Ball’s Of Fire during the courthouse level. I am gonna consider that canon.

#5

It was the courthouse level the two officers by the bus speak about a bald man fighting bikers at the Great Balls of Fire.

@SwingSwang
This thread, man

All I can say is wow this took some serious dedication, I can only imagine. Thank you for sharing this, this is great! I will definitely be keeping my eye on this thread and I’ll try to contribute what I can.

Amazing work, man. Respect!

I’ve been dedicating a lot of time to creating this. I’ve noticed people talking about Kane and Lynch and how it fits into The Hitman Franchise. Though I never played Kane and Lynch they do have a timeline that fit’s into the existing lore of the Hitman Series and for that, I wanna share my concept of IO having an expansive world and narrative in their games.

Another indirect clue is that 47 arrives to the Waikiki hotel on Patriot bus (you can see the bus in cutscene of AotS and during the mission)
However I agree that this or any other opportunity couldn’t be 100% treated as canon.

I would love to see your notes for Hitman 2. I’m currently trying to find placements for Hitman 2016’s Elusive Targets and I’m considering basing the dates in which they were activated the first time as the canonical dates in which they were assassinated.

Edit: I will place the Targets within the same timeframe of when the main targets were assassinated because Vito Duric complicates it with his affairs in 2018

It’s also not completed and some events such as the events of 2004 are out of order and overlap one another. I’ll be sure to add sources thanks for reminding me :slight_smile:

Edit: The Timeline on The Fandom is not completed and events are out of order to provide clarity.

#15

Many thanks for this thread. I have long wanted to see something like that! :clap:

#16

This must have taken a load of work! Good job dude

#17

So, if bar fight is canon, then I believe Kane was arrested for starting and participating it, since he’s in cell writing letter, when 47 goes after Skurky.

#18

That would be the logical situation, plus it is implied that he had illegal weapons in his duffle bag calling it “equipment”

#19

It’s good to see topics like this.

#20

I have something to add to this, as soon as I have time to polish it…
