IO Interactive is happy to accept the comical performances in “Hitman”, but only when it makes sense.
The “Hitman” series has recently become famous for its absurdity, excessive death and sometimes heinous assassination tools.use Killer 3IO Interactive wanted to tell a darker story without giving up all the jokes and wandering around.
Communications manager Travis Barbour explained to iGamesNews that this reputation was accidental.
“In “Hitman 2,” this surprised us. Someone was hit by a fish in the first trailer, and everyone was crazy about this fish,” he said.
“One thing we actually heard is that not everyone likes Hitman’s style, and it’s not always appropriate. Some people are like “Not a fish!” ! Marketers, stop fishing! We were surprised to catch up, we were a bit like riding a train, like “Okay! People like this fish, and flamingos!'”
Nowadays, the famous Agent 47 briefcase was originally an unintentional error, but later became a function after the IO saw the receiving message. This is an example.
“Not everything is intentional,” Barber revealed.
“The entire contents of the briefcase-this is a mistake! It is not the case. No one put it there, it has to do with the frame rate of your PC. But then we saw it, like, you know what, just put It’s kept there. It doesn’t actually make any sense to fix it-it will take us some time, and someone will have to fix it… we can keep it for a short period of time and then bring it back as a feature , A joke. That’s funny.”
Barbour emphasized that “Hitman 3” has a lot of weird things and has the potential to go crazy, but IO is adopting a more creative method to deal with players at all levels before putting players on their own devices to explore magic. The initial moment.
“We focus on the first time you play the level [in Hitman 3]. We hope that the feeling is handmade, a little more, so that you can understand the story. After that, it became completely free. Here, you are likely to find these strange and weird things. They are still there-they just haven’t been embraced in the same way,” Barber said.
“Hitman 3” will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on January 20.
