Hello! We’re gearing up for the reveal of the Season of Envy on Twitch later this week.
It’s the penultimate season and I’m excited to see the reactions to what the Hitman team have created for this season.
This thread is dedicated to your questions about HITMAN 3. Please submit them below and we’ll do our best to answer as many as we can. To be completely transparent, there will be some that we purposefully choose NOT to answer, for a variety of reasons.
Before some clever person asks the obvious question, allow me:
What are the reasons that you might choose to NOT answer a question?
Great question! It’s usually because we’d rather wait until another time to talk about a specific topic. When people ask “any plans for XYZ?”, that’s a very difficult question to give a good answer for. We probably have some plans or ideas, but don’t want to talk about them yet. Either because they might not turn into anything, or because we’ve got very concrete and secret plans about them that we want to excite you with at a later point to keep the focus on our current new content.
There might be other reasons too, but we generally try not to dodge too many questions and give a boring answer if that’s all we’ve got.
There is always he obligatory Contract Mode Updates that interests me and others, even if it is a “no plans so far” again.
Also the modding policy is a matter that I like to get an idea when to expect it. The last stream was more explicit on mods being against the EULA which made (some) modders a bit more scared that the policy will just be a big “No”.
Can you give us a number of how many devs are working on H3 content now?
What happens after 7DS?
In an interview with a magazine when DLC for H3 was announced, IO said the great thing about how the game is set up is you can make new content for maps from the previous games, is that going to actually happen?
Any updates on new Elusive Target formula? Still discussed or been canceled?
It’s been 8 months after HITMAN 3 is released, but no news on this topic.
Why Sniper Assassin multiplayer is still alive in HITMAN 2 despite it been announced that it will be taken down before HITMAN 3 release?
HITMAN 3 released 8 months ago, and Sniper Assassin multiplayer is still alive. I ask this as a fan of Ghost Mode which been scrapped more than year ago and I feel uncomfortable with popular mode killed long ago while the mode that always been hard to find opponent to play with is still ongoing
Will any more of the legacy Hitman 2016 escalations ever be brought back for 3?
There are 38 escalations that haven’t reappeared in 2 or 3, surely some of them are good enough to be brought back.
Will any of the items from the past games that are unobtainable in 3 ever be reimplemented?
I’m mainly talking about the Aluminum Travel Briefcase, ICA Commendable/Superior/Outstanding Coins, and the Black Winter Suit. There’s also the Claw Hammer, Jaeger 7 Covert, and items related to seasonal events.
1. What is your (and Clemens’) favorite map of the trilogy and why?
2. What is your (and Clemens’) favorite video of speedrunners/players of the trilogy? I think I remember the Hitman twitter account posting a video of Gule launching a fire axe, catching it mid-air and killing the Sheik in Paris suit only silent assassin. Videos like that?
3.I like the question I read in this thread: what has surprised you/devs when reviewing the player data? Certain maps not being as popular as you would have expected or vice versa? Certain areas of maps not being visited often? Certain weapons being very popular?
