When is the Hitman 3 Steam release date?

When is the Hitman 3 Steam release date? PC gamers with an aversion to the Epic Games Store have been left asking this question following the recent announcement of a timed EGS exclusivity period. So, when will Hitman 3 come out on Steam? Here’s everything you need to know.

What is the Hitman 3 Steam release date?

Hitman 3 Steam release date

The Hitman 3 Steam release date is most likely January 2022. No official date has been set at the time of writing, though it has been confirmed that EGS exclusivity will last for “12 months.” With the Hitman 3 Epic Games Store release date set for January 2021, that’d position the Steam version to land in January 2022.

Developer IO Interactive says that partnering with Epic was in the game’s best interest. The exclusivity deal has apparently given the dev team “freedom to create Hitman 3 exactly as [they] imagined.

Whatever the case, many PC players aren’t too pleased about the Hitman 3 Steam delay. Though it’s possible to transfer data from the Steam versions of Hitman and Hitman 2 to Hitman 3 on EGS, some people just don’t want to divide their PC games library. It’s understandable, though whether that inconvenience is worth enduring a year-long wait is down to the individual.

When is Hitman 3 coming to Steam?

If you want to know the Hitman 3 Steam release date, here’s all of the latest information:

  • The Hitman 3 Steam release date is likely to be January 2022.
  • Epic Games Store exclusivity lasts for “12 months” according to IO Interactive.
  • With the EGS version scheduled to launch in January 2021, that positions the Hitman 3 Steam version to land in January 2022.
  • No official Hitman 3 Steam launch date has been announced at this time, so scheduling could change.

If EGS exclusivity has helped to make Hitman 3 a better game, hopefully, the wait for a Hitman 3 Steam release date will be worthwhile. Only time will tell, but, in the meantime, stick with Game Revolution for more on Hitman 3.
