Hitman 3 will probably release around 2020 or the start of 2021 if it takes the same amount of time to make as Hitman 2. But considering they have 2 offices now, I’d say around Fall 2020.
So who do I think are the Targets?
We know that 47 is going after the partners. These include Madam Carlisle. She is a British woman which can be deduced from her accent when speaking to the constant and one of the most powerful people on Earth. A mission with just her is unlikely and will probably include another family member or lawyer. As you could probably guess. This mission will probably take place in England. And if the media is anything to go by, England means London.
Our second person of interest is Carl Ingram. He is one of the partners and has an American Accent. From this we can probably assume another USA based level is on the way. Of course IO can change this and could probably place him in Canada or Mexico. But if they are to make another USA based mission it could be a perfect time to introduce The Pentagon or perhaps an airport. Unlike Madam Carlisle, this location is harder to pinpoint because London seems like a very likely hitman setting and America is very overdone at this point. Expect to see him appear in America with at least one other target.
Thirdly, Marcus Stuyvesant is the third partner. Like the others we can determine from his accent that he is most likely Dutch. Denmark would be a great location for a hitman game. I’m sure IO could fit in a lot of Easter eggs into this mission and it’s probable that they set it in Denmark for this reason alone. Expect at least one more target, possibly his daughter who can be seen in the isle of Sgáil, Cornelia Stuyvesant.
Now that the partners are dealt with, let’s move onto other possible candidates. It is extremely likely that we will see Tren and Jin Po. They are dictators of the country of Khandanyang and have made their people worship them like God’s. IO have made these characters prominent throughout the previous missions so their assassination is most likely imminent. The level will almost certainly be set in Khandanyang.
The Constant surely won’t just get off Scot free right? Well this is a lot less likely than the others, he could reappear in a mission. However, there are no clues to point to where the mission would be set so anything I mention would be purely guesswork. I can imagine the game starts with the constant escaping and you eliminating him akin to the new Zealand level of hitman 2, more like a small tutorial.
Finally, the betrayal of Lucas Grey and Olivia Hall. It is likely because IO would most likely want a fresh pallet for the next hitman story and be able to give this one a conclusive ending. And no, I can’t see it be set in the asylum. Compared to the modern day levels, the asylum would be abandoned and empty leading to it to be more of a disappointment. If an earlier level is not set in the UK, we can assume that this one will be because of Olivia Halls accent. I can imagine this being the finale also.
Things will most certainly change and it is hard to make assumptions based off of accents as to where the level will be set, for example, who would have guessed that Alma Reynard would be killed in New Zealand?
