Hitman monthly roadmap put out; episodic format likely to continue
A lot of questions were raised by the gaming community when the rights to Hitman were given over to IO Interactive. Their departure from Square Enix to be completely independent raised the questions: Will Hitman stay episodic?
IO Interactive has now put out a monthly roadmap of where the series it headed. This is the 16th consecutive update that IO has put out for Hitman.
“15 new Featured Contracts will be added to the game on July 7 and this week’s featured contract creators are: Quinez, Spodeq, AGENT4T7, BernardoOne, Euler 13, Gule, Pagan, GKPunk, Urben, Ed ll3, Niobium, immadummee, Silverballer, SnakeGun and Mendietinha,” reads their update post. “Our July content will be released over a few different dates.”
“The final Elusive Target for Season One will arrive later in the month and will be on the Marrakesh Bonus mission; A House Built on Sand. As the contract is in Marrakesh, you’ll unlock the Summer Suit with Gloves if this is the first ET you complete in Marrakesh. Equally, if you earn your first SA rating for this ET, you’ll unlock the Terminus Suit. Check the challenges in-game to see what suits you can still unlock through Elusive Targets, all depending on how many of the previous Elusive Targets you’ve completed.
We are also planning a game update for this month. We’ll have details to share and full release notes closer to when we’re releasing it.”
