Io-Interactive has revealed that the Season Finale of Hitman will be located in Hokkaido, Japan and that it’s set to launch on October 31st for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Hitman – Episode 6: Hokkaido’s mission will be titled “Situs Inversus” and will be the culmination of everything you’ve learned since the first episode launched back in March of this year. The Hokkaido setting is set specifically within the grounds of the GAMA private hospital and resort, a secluded facility that fuses together traditional Japanese beauty and cutting-edge technology. It is here that Agent 47 will face the task of assassinating his last two targets.
The following statement was released alongside the announcement:
“It was a brave decision to go fully digital episodic with Hitman, fundamentally changing how we make the game, and for us it has been a major success,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head, Io-Interactive. “I want to say a big thank you to all the players for making this possible! Together we’ve built and run the biggest and most replayable locations of any Hitman game and added new live content every single week since launch. And although we’re now completing season one, this is only the beginning for our ever expanding World of Assassination.”
A retail collection including the complete first season of Hitman is due out on January 31.
