Hitman Dev Criticizes Season Passes, Promises “Big Game” at Launch

IO Interactive studio head Hannes Seifert isn’t a fan of the season pass philosophy.

IO Interactive will be returning with a new Hitman title later this year but will be taking a decidedly different approach from before. This new open world assassination title will be digital first and release live content over time. Best of all, it will all be free.

In conversation with VideoGamer, studio head Hannes Seifert criticized the current policy of Season Passes in the industry. “There are other products that sell a game for $60 and then try to sell you a Season Pass for another $40 on top…players want to be part of that experience but they don’t necessarily want to be ripped off.

“What we put out there [at launch] is going to be a big game. But over the course of 2016 we’ll add more locations, more missions, and we’ll have things like targets that only appear for, say, two days. That’s something you can only do in the live world.”

Hitman releases on December 8th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

    don’t like season pass but enjoys exclusive content to one console. That makes a lot of sense

      It dose make sense, its is a good chance they were paid to put the exclusive content on one console.

      It makes perfect sense. If they got paid to hold back content on one console then why not get paid for dlc. Either way they would get extra cash. If you fight one cause you should fight them all. Xbox and playstation owners pay the same price for a game but one gets shorted of content while the other gets everything on the disk.
