The upcoming February update for Hitman 3 will bring several new features each week under the umbrella of the Initiation Protocol.
While Hitman 3 has only been available for a few weeks, the latest release from IO Interactive has already gotten off to a strong start.
The game was opened to positive critical reception and sales that have reached franchise highs. As we get closer to February, the studio has begun to outline what post-launch support will look like with the game’s first content roadmap, the Initiation Protocol.
Developer IO Interactive has revealed the roadmap for the February update on Hitman 3. The studio took a look at all the new additions and features coming to the game during February, with new content arriving every week this month. You can see below what is coming from the new update each week:

As IO describes it, the great new additions include featured contracts from MinnMax and Kinda Funny, along with new escalations and a new elusive target. Additionally, the studio noted that a patch will arrive later this month with updates and performance tweaks.
Our own Kris Cornelisse reviewed Hitman 3 last month and came out impressed. While it will primarily appeal to Hitman fans, the third installment in the series still leaves room for creative executions. In the review, Kris mentioned:
In general, I can identify the great quality of Hitman 3, even if it is not the type of game I will return to a lot. This isn’t exactly a good place to start for newcomers either, and I recommend checking out previous games / levels first. However, for those who are already fans, this should be just what the unusual doctor with the barcode tattoo ordered.
Hitman 3 is now available on PS5, Xbox Series X | S, PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch and PC.
