IO Interactive’s final flourish with its Hitman trilogy was to bring it all under one roof, with Hitman 3 morphing into Hitman: World of Assassination and adding a roguelike mode alongside everything from the first two games. Or it felt like the final flourish anyway, with the game being maintained and patched since but no new additions (and even IO itself saying Hitman “is a little bit on hiatus“).

The studio has now announced a new elusive target is coming to the game this fall, free for all players, as part of IO’s 25th anniversary celebrations. The target will be superstar DJ Dimitri Vegas, who’s lending his likeness and voiceover to a character called The Drop loosely based on himself: the Hitman Vegas will be a DJ-turned-druglord who’s “bent on controlling the scene one way or another”.
