We already knew that Hitman 3 would be arriving in January of next year, but we didn’t have an exact date for the title, until now. IO Interactive has officially announced that Hitman 3 will launch on January 20, 2021, for both the current and next generation of consoles as well as PC. To sweeten the deal, the company also revealed a nice bonus for those who plan to buy the game digitally through either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. The studio will offer the ability to upgrade a digital copy of the game to the next generation, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and it will cost absolutely nothing.
We heard you like free next gen upgrades, Deluxe Editions and awesome pre-order bonuses.
