Principal Cast Announced

IO Interactive has announced the launch window for the upcoming Hitman 3. You'll be able to get your hands on the game in January next year. It's coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. We don't have a specific release date for Hitman 3 yet, but it's safe to start getting excited if you're a Hitman fan.

Who's playing who in Hitman 3?

Along with news of Hitman 3's launch window, IO Interactive also revealed the principal cast of the game. Please do note that some spoilers for Hitman and Hitman 2 follow. Of course, you'll see the return of Agent 47, with longtime series mainstay David Bateson returning to play and voice the legendary hitman. 47's handler Diana Burnwood also returns, played by Jane Perry, as she was in the previous two titles in this new trilogy. Hacker and Private Militia ally Olivia Hall makes a return, played by Isaura Barbe-Brown. Naturally, the Shadow Client Lucas Grey is also returning and is portrayed by John Hopkins. Finally, Hitman 2's antagonist The Constant is returning, portrayed by Philip Rosch.

Hitman 3 will conclude the new trilogy started by Hitman back in 2016 and continued by 2018's Hitman 2. The newest game will conclude the story of 47 and the shadowy organization known as Providence. IO Interactive says that Hitman 3 will feature six locations at launch, and you'll be able to explore Dubai first. Since the new Hitman games lean towards the service model, however, you'll be able to import stages and progress from both Hitman and Hitman 2, so you won't need to worry about losing everything you've built up in those two games.

Are you looking forward to checking out Hitman 3? Happy to see the return of David Bateson as 47? Let us know in the comments below!

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
