Hitman 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a year
Epic Games' ongoing troubles with Apple and Google might not be over anytime soon, but that hasn't stopped the company from doing what it best. IO Interactive has confirmed that Hitman 3 is going be an Epic Games Store exclusive upon its launch on PC. Console players can still grab the game off of regular channels, though.
Hitman 3 will remain exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a year after its January 2021 launch. According to a company spokesperson, the exclusivity deal will allow players to carry over progress from previous games to Hitman 3. Thankfully, the feature will also work with Steam copies of Hitman and Hitman 2.
Hitman will be available for free on the Epic Games Store starting August 27. Let's hope that Hitman 2 follows suit, as it will give players ample time to catch up on the franchise before Hitman 3 is released. PC gamers who want to avoid the Epic Games Store can still play the game on Google Stadia. It's availability on other game streaming platforms like Project xCloud and GeForce NOW is unknown. We should know more as the game's release date draws nearer.
