By Heidi Nicholas,
IO Interactive has confirmed that Hitman 3 — Year 2 kicks off on January 20th, 2022, with a full 12 months of content, including new maps and modes.


IOI's announcement first notes the success of the World of Assassination trilogy as a whole, with 50 million players, before confirming Hitman 3 as the most successful Hitman game "of all time."

Year 2 starts in January. "New maps, storylines, modes and ways to play are all lined up for 2022, which is set to be another exciting year," IOI explains. There will also be a new game mode — Elusive Target Arcade — which will offer up a "new way to play Elusive Targets," although we'll learn more about this in January. In spring, we'll also see a "major update."

We should hear more about all this new upcoming content in January. What do you think? What are you most excited to see in Hitman 3 — Year 2? Let us know in the comments!

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
