Hitman III release date is still a ways off based on the trailer announcement during the PlayStation 5 games event. Described in the YouTube video, “Agent 47 returns as a ruthless professional for the most important contracts of his entire career in Hitman 3, the dramatic conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy.
The Hitman series is a strange one. It had a cult following with a few successful games, and some terrible ones as well. In 2016, the series took a turn and focused on a new storyline titled the World of Assassination trilogy. Hitman III will be the third and final in the series.
While a specific date was not given, fans can expect the game in January 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. Since it’s the conclusion of the series, set to release on the new generation of consoles, and will probably end the Hitman story altogether, expect this one to be a masterclass.
Hitman III was just one of the many third-party games announced during the PS5 event. Another notable title was Resident Evil: Village, otherwise known as Resident Evil 8. Expect more information on both games as we get closer and closer to the next generation of consoles taking the market by storm.
