Hitman 3 will have some DLC, just maybe not new maps

Extra Hitman 3 content is on the way, but it may not take the form of new maps.

Speaking with TheGamer, IO Interactive said to expect additional content to be made available for Hitman 3, but look at it in terms of Escalation contracts and possibly other limited-time content.

“We are definitely going to be doing some DLC, but we haven’t defined what that is. I think for now we are not looking at new maps like the bank and the island,” said executive producer Forest Swartout Large.

“We’re more looking at using existing locations and reimagining them, twisting them. And this time around, we can use the whole trilogy. We can look back at Hitman 2016 maps, Hitman 2 maps – we have all the locations.”

At least there is more planned for the game than just what’s currently available.

The game was released on January 20 for PC (Epic Games Store), PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. It is a very well-received title with good scores all around. VG247’s Alex Donaldson even called it a “fitting finale to one of gaming’s best trilogies.”
