Yesterday, we also reported that those who buy Hitman 3 in the digital store due to the exclusivity of the Epic Games Store need to purchase Part 2 content separately in the form of a paid DLC, even if the game is otherwise. They own Steam – simply because the second Hitman is not on the EGS show. (Note: One of the cool attractions of Hitman 3 is that the developers have already revealed at the time of its announcement that it will allow us to tweak the paths and challenges of the first and second action, and even if we have it, we can go there. As usual, the popular anger has not escalated against IO – that is Creators – But the Epic Games Store, saying digital businesses are forcing developers to encourage people to spend money on their own interface).
Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic, has always been active on social media, especially on Twitter. According to him, if a person is to be angry at a special decision, then this is not himself, but me. The expert pointed out that the company is committed not to mistakenly buy back customers, for example, what they have already purchased on Steam, only to be able to enjoy one of its entries in all its splendor – that is. Briefly and briefly, despite the fact that everyone blames them for this thing, they have nothing to do with it now. There might be a small glimmer of hope – although we are already writing this independently of Sweeney – that IO has also responded to popular outrage and indicated that it cannot be ruled out that until Hitman 3 is released, Steam II backups can be imported into Epic. Games Store. .
Hitman 3 will be released on January 20, 2021 for Big Air, Windows, Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, as well as Google Stadia.
