Io Interactive’s foray into episodic releases with Hitman is coming to an end. At least, the first season is. Hokkaido, Japan is the backdrop for the sixth Hitman episode. I’ll let Square Enix take it from here:
The Hokkaido location is set within the grounds of the hyper-exclusive GAMA private hospital and resort. This secluded facility is a fusion of Japanese beauty and cutting-edge technology, featuring its own Zen gardens, organic sushi restaurant and traditional Japanese hot spring. Agent 47 must locate two targets in this climactic Season Finale.
And here’s the trailer.
Looking good, 47. The season finale of Hitman hits PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 31. Still waiting for the entire package before jumping in? Square Enix plans to launch Hitman: The Complete First Season on January 31, 2017 for $59.99 on consoles and $49.99 on PC. It includes the six main story locations along with three bonus missions and a few more goodies.
3 Bonus Missions Pack – Includes “The Icon” and “A House Built on Sand” missions, plus the brand new upcoming “Landslide” mission.
Original Soundtrack – Featuring the original game score.
The ‘Making of’ Hitman Documentary – Charting the journey from showing the game to our fans for the first time before E3 2015, through to the digital launch in 2016.
“Requiem Blood Money Pack” – Includes the signature Blood Money white suit, white rubber duck and chrome ICA pistol.
The PlayStation 4 version includes the six additional exclusive “The Sarajevo Six” missions.
More Hitman seasons are coming
Don’t worry Hitman fans, more locales and more targets are coming. Details are a bit slim on the future of Hitman, but IO Interactive confirmed two more seasons are being planned. Here’s the tweet from August.
@bergf89 Of course, our plan is to have three seasons. Although Season Two hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Like I said, details are slim right now.
I’m betting we get our first look at the second season of Hitman at The Game Awards on December 1. It’s as good a place as any to drop a trailer.
And if you still need convincing about another season of Hitman coming, here’s Studio Head Hannes Seifert talking about the game’s future today. “And although we’re now completing season one, this is only the beginning for our ever expanding World of Assassination.”
I’m going to assume we won’t see the second season of Hitman until February at the earliest. It wouldn’t make much sense to start the second season before getting Hitman: The Complete First Season out the door.
