Hitman has always been a compelling series of games, yet Hitman 3 looked to expand the series even more. The game just squeaked into 2021 by releasing on January 20th. To some, the title might be confusing. This is the eighth Hitman video game, so why is it called Hitman 3? It is technically part of the “World of Assassination” Trilogy that IO Interactive wanted to make. It will be the conclusion of the story that started in the first Hitman from this series in 2016.
That means Hitman, Hitman 2, & Hitman 3 are all separate from the other versions of the game. In Hitman 3, Agent 47 is back yet again. He as well as some of his allies are hunting down the leaders of Providence. This is an alliance of powerful corporate executives and industrialists that control a lot of global political, military, and economic interests. Agent 47 must put a stop to their control by any means necessary. You can easily see why it’s one of the most popular Playstation games, right?
