In our Hitman 3 review, Jim wrote:

Charting the series’ progress since that 2016 Paris debut has been a fascinating journey. IO have learned a lot over the past five years and that really shows in Hitman 3. It’s a flashier, more fluid evolution of IO’s original template – a rewarding conclusion to one of the most unique video game franchises around, and one we’ll continue playing for many weeks and months to come.

IO Interactive recently announced their February roadmap for Hitman 3, promising new content every week of the month with new missions and rewards.
