We're less than two weeks away from the launch of Hitman 3, the latest instalment of IO Interactive's popular stealth game series. No wonder that recently we have been receiving fresh information about this project on a regular basis. The latest news concern a leaked list of locations featured in the game.
If you avoid game-related spoilers, you should finish reading here. One of the revealed locations may suggest important facts from the story of Hitman 3.
The source of these reports is a Reddit user known as heiko123abc, who published an fragment from the game's menu. In combination with previously officially revealed locations, the full list of levels should look like this:
- Dubai, United Arab Emirates
- Dartmoor Park, England
- Berlin, Germany
- Chongqing, China
- Mendoza, Argentina
- Carpathian Mountains, Romania
The first four locations on the list were already known. The last two are new. Especially the Carpathians are interesting. Fans speculate that this may mean that the authors are preparing for us to return to the place where Agent 47 was created . In the first game in the series, Hitman: Codename 47, we could visit a sanatorium located in Romania, where Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer's laboratory was hidden. This scientist combined the DNA of several people to create the perfect man. The result of these experiments was everyone's favorite bald hitman.
Hitman 3 is supposed to be the last new installment in the series for a long time. So it seems like a good idea to return to the roots and threads from the first installment. It will make it easier for the devs to deliver a satisfactory finale of Agent 47's story.
As a reminder, Hitman 3 will launch on January 20, this year on PC (on Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
