IO Interactive will reveal Hitman's launch content "soon"

Hitman launch content

In an era of convoluted business models, IO’s upcoming Hitman still manages to stand out as particularly strange. It’s some kind of monstrous hybrid, the product of season pass, an episodic game and an early access title taking a radioactive bath together. 

Underneath the peculiar model is a promising game that’s more evocative of the superb Blood Money rather than the disappointing Absolution, but one important question remains unanswered: what will early adopters be getting at launch? 

IO’s still not telling, but in an interview with PC Gamer, studio boss Hannes Seifert promised that we’d all find out very soon. He said that IO would spill the beans not long after Gamescom, and with Gamescom now over, expect details shortly. 

And the reason for them not pulling the trigger just yet? 

“We know that when we do something that new and ground breaking, people have questions ... What we want to do is we want to be very clear about what comes when over the course of the game.”

Something with the Hitman name will launch this December.

I was a fan of Blood Money when it was first released back in 2006. Unfortunately, I still haven't had the chance to play Absolution, but I guess now is a better time than any. Can't wait to see what IO does with this one.

The contracts could be fun, but Absolution is mostly just underwhelming. There are 2, maybe 3 missions that come close to capturing Hitman, but the rest are quite poor. It's frequently on sale for very little though, so it might be worth a punt if you really want to see what it's like.

"Soon" - Once we have tested the water to see how much we can get away with, without a full on internet backlash.
