Hitman 3’s Freelance mode moved into the second half of the year, roadmap shows what’s ahead

IO Interactive has announced it has delayed the release of Freelance for Hitman 3, the new roguelike mode that was originally slated for spring.

According to the studio, after some internal testing and feedback from builds played by the core community, the team decided to take some extra time to “tighten the mode up” and improve several elements to improve the gameplay experience.

Announced back in January, Freelancer introduces strategic planning and a customizable Safehouse.
