Unknown whether it will launch this January alongside other platforms.
Remember when Resident Evil 7: biohazard and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey saw cloud-based versions releasing for the Switch? Other developers are giving this method a spin with IO Interactive unveiling Hitman 3 – Cloud Version for the platform. Check out the announcement trailer below.
The cloud version will be available via the Nintendo eShop. It’s worth noting that a release date wasn’t provided so it could very well launch after Hitman 3 comes to other platforms next year. Given the Nintendo Switch’s general Wi-Fi capabilities, it should be interesting to see how Agent 47’s latest adventure runs.
Hitman 3 releases on January 20th 2021 for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PC (which is a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store) and Google Stadia. It marks the end of the World of Assassination trilogy and features locations like Dubai, England and more. Those who purchase the title for current-gen platforms can avail of a free upgrade for next-gen consoles. Stay tuned for more details, including more extensive gameplay and other location reveals, in the coming months.
