HITMAN 3 Gets Developer Insights Trailer


Discover what players can expect from HITMAN 3’s tone and story with the latest developer diary for IO Interactive’s title.

Communications Manager Travis Barbour and Community Developer Clemens Koch sat down to discuss how HITMAN 3 is their endgame, where everything comes together. Creative Director Christian Elverdam mentioned that they wanted to bring back the essence of the HITMAN series, and that this title is the dramatic conclusion of the series, marking the end of a journey.

Executive Producer Forest Swartout Large spoke about the development of the title as well, mentioning how this title is about closure of the storyline, and that HITMAN 3 serves as a love letter to their core fans. To explain how they wish to achieve this vision, Game Director Mattias Engstrom talked about how they are taking the beautiful locations and level design, and inviting players to explore, be creative, and do things never done before in the series.

The video also mentions how HITMAN 3 will feature progression carryover from HITMAN 2, meaning that weapons, unlocks, and mastery comes in with the player. The tone of the game will be a bit more dark than the previous entries in the series, proving to be a bit more contemplative and intimate.

Finally, the video talks about the studio’s journey to self-publish the title. CEO Hakan Abrak mentions that this new arrangement is unhinged, unfiltered, and unplugged, allowing them to have a closer connection with their fans.
