It's now official from the makers of Hitman 3 Year 2 - the game is arriving in VR in January 2022 - this is awesome news indeed!

 

 

The game is made by Io Interactive - I guess they saw that Alyx sold more than 2 million copies and got an idea - PCVR enthusiasts may be a tough crowd, but maybe not if you got totally awesome content, we'll see. 

 

And which HMDs did IO Interactive use for this game 🤔 ... let's see... 😎

Note that Hitman 3 was financially supported by Epic, thus Hitman 3 was an Epic PC exclusive for 12 months - lasting until January 2022:

 

"HITMAN 3 pre-orders are scheduled to go live later this month and we’re pleased to have an updated line-up of platforms. In January 2021, you’ll be able to play HITMAN 3 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC, where the game will be available exclusively via Epic Games Store for 12 months.

As an independent studio, our partnership with Epic has given us the freedom to create HITMAN 3 exactly as we imagined and self-publish the game to our players directly. It’s also important to us that we honour the time our existing PC players have spent in our previous games."

Probably has not been cheap for Epic to buy such rights - and I wonder if January 2022 will mean that the PCVR version will be available on Steam? I'd really dislike not being able to use Steam for the game.
