Let’s face it. What IO Interactive has been able to do with the Hitman franchise since they were granted their independence from Square Enix has been phenomenal. The way they have tied together all three of their games into the World of Assassination package and allowing players to play through the entire trilogy in one complete package has been a wonderful fan-first move.
This week, IO Interactive announced their huge plan for Hitman III in a press release including a deep dive into their Year 2 DLC. Part of the announcement, however, is that IO’s entire trilogy is making its way to Xbox Game Pass as the Hitman Trilogy on January 20, 2022 on both Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
Here’s IOI’s statement:
“Now that the trilogy is complete, we’re excited to unveil HITMAN Trilogy as a way for new players to get started in the World of Assassination. This collection brings together HITMAN 1, HITMAN 2 and HITMAN 3 into a single package, making it easier than ever to take your first steps to becoming Agent 47.
The HITMAN Trilogy will be available with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate on January 20, giving you everything you need to jump straight into the World of Assassination. We’re excited to welcome a wave of new players to enjoy the full trilogy through new platforms and services.”IO Interactive Press Release for Hitman Trilogy
