Hitman 3 is out now on multiple platforms and has been a critical and commercial success for IO Interactive. However, prior to launch, the developer said that owners of Hitman 1 and 2 on Steam wouldn’t need to re-purchase those games on Epic Games Store to import their locations into Hitman 3. On its official forum, the developer noted that the proposed importing solution is currently being tested.
“We’ve got that solution worked out and it’s currently being tested and verified from all angles to make it as robust as possible. In terms of timing, it’s definitely a case of sooner rather than later.” It noted that “even with the longest estimates,” players should look forward to the solution arriving by February end. The developer will keep players updated on the next steps to follow.
Prior to launch, IO Interactive came under fire for requiring players to re-purchase Hitman 2 on the Epic Games Store to import its locations into Hitman 3. It did offer Hitman 1 for free and discount the second game for Hitman 3’s launch before later changing its stance. Stay tuned for more details on when the level importing solution will go live.
Hitman 3 is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. There’s plenty of post-launch content coming this month – check out the roadmap here.
