Funnily enough, I first joined the forum on May the 5th, 2020.

Question
Will players who arrived new to the series at the launch of HITMAN 3 (and/or players who otherwise weren’t able to transfer HITMAN 2 Elusive Target progress into H3 e.g. those who changed platforms between H2-H3 etc) have the chance to earn all ‘Legacy’ Elusive Target suit rewards?

This would require:

  • At least 15 Elusive Targets released in HITMAN 3 in total (‘new’ or ‘old’) to allow unlocking of the Casual Undercover suit (and the other non-Location-Specific suits earned ‘on the way’ to the Casual Undercover e.g. 47’s Signature Suit With Gloves etc); and
  • 1 or more Elusive Targets to be released in locations where a Location-Specific Elusive Target Suit is not available via other unlock paths in HITMAN 3. These are: Paris (TBC), Sapienza (already done with The Deceivers), Marrakesh (TBC), Bangkok (TBC), Colorado (TBC), Hokkaido (TBC), Miami (TBC), Santa Fortuna (TBC), Whittleton Creek (TBC) and Isle Of Sgail (already done with The Stowaway).

Do IOI plan to release ETs (probably recycled Legacy ETs, which would be cool) in these quantities and at these locations to allow HITMAN 3 players not importing H2 ET progress into their game the chance to earn the same set of ET suits that were unlockable in HITMAN 2?

Question
Could you give a concrete example (or two) of when a fan idea or suggestion led to its inclusion in the game? What advice do you have for fans who would like some of their ideas be implemented by IO?

Question
With the Hitman story arc neatly concluded with Hitman 3 and probably going on a small hiatus, are you considering spin-off games with other characters from the same universe?

Question
Is the creation process for featured contracts going to return to non-affiliated fans at some point? Are you considering any other ways of introducing fan-created content, such as some escalations as we’ve seen in the past?

Question
The nods to the earliest Hitman games with recent escalations and outfits have been received extremely well. Could you give an insight on how the idea to do this came about?

Question
Are there plans in place for the far-future, when the Hitman servers will go offline?

Are there still any plans to update Contracts Mode with any of the suggestions from the topic that was made a few years ago?

Question

With full-on bonus missions (à la Landslide) being very resource/development intensive and WoA slowly wrapping up; Is it safe to say the majority of new IO created content over the next few months will mainly be within the format of escalations?

Or are there any plans to package content in a new way?


On a personal note, very glad to see the livestreams back and can’t wait to tune in :blush:

Question
Would it be possible (or are there any plans) to make further videos with devs - similar to the one about Dartmoor a while ago - about how the individual levels came into being, what the creative process looked like and what ideas were considered/abandoned (possibly even about scrapped concepts like the original Colorado)?

Question
Are there plans on bringing (all) the ETs into the game as permanently playable missions (e.g. in the Special Assignments category) once their (re-)runs end in the future?

Question

Will we be seeing the release of more HITMAN 3 concept art in the near future?

I’ve got a handful.

Question 1
Will we see a new Elusive Target on every map of Hitman 3? (except Romania, probably)

Question 1.5
Will we see any Legacy ETs (or new H3 ETs) become pernenantly replayable content in the future?
It’s unfortunate that so many of the good ones can only ever be played/killed once.

Question 2
Can we get any indication that the 7 Deadly Sins DLC will feature a variety of content, not just restricted to escalations?
The blog post was very vague about this.

Question 3
Also interested in the Q’s above: Is there a chance we might see any additions or updates to Contracts Mode in H3?
(some Escalation complications, Freeform Training location (Yacht), longer briefing size?)

Question 4
Will we see some Hitman 2016 Escalations return in upcoming content roadmaps?

Question 5
Goldballer when? (Big missed opportunity not releasing it in the Season of Greed.)

Question
What do you think of potential merch based on Clemen’s deadly sins clothes called Clemensware?

I will probably miss the stream since it starts late at night for me, so unfortunately I won’t be there to watch it live.
