Hitman 3 developer, IO Interactive, has just revealed the launch date for the Nintendo Switch edition of the game. Hitman 3 will be the third and final title in the World of Assassination trilogy, which started with 2016’s conservatively called Hitman. This third entry is anticipated to wrap up the trilogy and feature a darker, more immersive storyline.
Like its two predecessors, Hitman 3 will take protagonist Agent 47 to breathtaking and bizarre locations as he works to hunt and take down his targets. All six of the game’s stages were recently announced, so fans can look forward to discovering each iconic area including the Carpathian Mountains, Berlin, and Dubai.
However, Hitman 3 will not be limited to only six missions. Similar to Hitman 2 contained all of the first title’s missions, Hitman 3 will also come with all of the content from the two past titles in the franchise. Even more remarkable is that the developer supposedly managed to fit all of the three games into only less than 100GB of space.

After recently revealing Hitman 3 version for the Nintendo Switch, IO Interactive has not revealed a launch date on the console via their official Twitter account. The Switch version of the game is scheduled to launch on January 20, the same day as every other version of Hitman 3, meaning fans won’t be experiencing any delays. Fans playing Hitman 3 on the Nintendo Switch will be experiencing the Cloud Version of the game, which uses cloud streaming technology to allow the new game to run on older consoles.
Hitman 3 will end the World of Assassination trilogy which means that this likely is the final time fans will see Hitman for some time. However, the developer is moving on to a new exciting project, as the studio recently announced that its next title will be set within the spying world of James Bond. The Bond franchise appears to be a perfect fit for a development team that transcends in assassination and deception, so fans are hyped to see the result of this partnership.
IO Interactive’s World of Assassination trilogy has given new life into a classic franchise, successfully bringing Agent 47 into the modernized age of gaming. The popularity of the past two games means that Hitman 3 should be a huge success, and every player should have the chance to play.
