Update: Hitman 3 players unable to transfer their Hitman 2 progress, IOI working on a fix

By Sean Carey,
Update: IO Interactive has provided a few more updates on the current progression carryover issue. The developer has been hard at work trying to fix the bombarded servers and other issues. Although IOI hasn't provided an update today, many of you have now managed to transfer your progress. If you haven't done so already, now might be time to do so.

Original Story: Hitman 3 is now out, but some players are having trouble transferring their Hitman 2 progress, which is stopping them from playing Agent 47's latest outing and unlocking some Hitman 3 trophies. The progression carryover website is currently down, and IO Interactive says it's working on a fix.

With Hitman 3, you can transfer all of your progress from Hitman 2, including unlocks, Mastery Levels and trophy progress. However, if you start playing Hitman 3, unlocking things as you go, and decide you want to transfer your Hitman 2 progress, any progression and unlocks you've made in Hitman 3 will be erased. According to reports, players can not log into their IOI accounts and are having issues accessing the carryover website.

In a tweet, (thanks, VGC) IOI said it's working on getting things up and running. "We're tracking and will have everyone in the game with their progress as soon as possible." In a further tweet, the developer asked players to keep an eye on its Twitter page for updates instead of bombarding the website.

Trophy hunters can automatically unlock numerous trophies from Hitman and Hitman 2 by transferring their progress over to Hitman 3, which is kind of a big deal as it saves players from having to replay levels from previous games.
