As revealed in a YouTube documentary by IO Interactive employees, a third Hitman game is already in the works. Hitman 2 gets a new DLC today, namely Siberia (The Prison), and Hitman 3 could bring back the episodic structure that was present in the first Hitman title, which was released back in 2016.

Although the company behind the Hitman franchise has been sailing rough waters for a while, this family of stealth video games remains one of the best in its niche — and also one of the most underrated in the industry, unfortunately. The good part is that Hitman 3 is already in development and today, Hitman 2 has also received a new DLC, namely Siberia (The Prison).

A documentary about the rise and fall of IO Interactive that has been published on YouTube yesterday reveals that Hitman 3 is in the works and the company is interested in returning to the episodic structure that was used for the Hitman game released back in 2016.

Despite its name, Hitman 3 will not be the third game in the series, since it all started back in 2000, with the release of Hitman: Codename 47. After it, no less than six more titles arrived: Hitman 2: Silent Assassin (2002), Hitman: Contracts (2004), Hitman: Blood Money (2006), Hitman: Absolution (2012), Hitman (2016), and Hitman 2 (2018). Two mobile spinoffs have been released as well, namely Hitman Go and Hitman: Sniper.

Today, Hitman 2 players can download a new DLC — Siberia (The Prison). This is the second post-launch Sniper Assassin map that comes as part of the Expansion Pass. The DLC comes with a new location, new challenges, Rifle Mastery Progression (including the Druzhina 34 ICA Arctic unlock), new achievements/trophies, and more.
