Hitman 3's offer to house all the series' levels in a single game has proven a little touchy for PC players, but development studio IO Interactive says a permanent solution is on its way later this month.
"Even with the longest estimates we've looked at, the solution will be fully rolled out before the end of February," communications manager Travis Barbour wrote on IO's official forums. "We'll keep you updated with the next steps."
Hitman 3's temporary Epic Games Store-exclusivity disrupted the importing process for PC players because the previous games in the series had only been released on Steam. The platform disparity meant PC players couldn't access the levels, items, weapons and other unlockables they'd collected in previous games for use in Hitman 3. IO Interactive had previously promised a seamless importing process, earning the ire of some who had pre-ordered the game.
To make it up to those players burned by the platform problems, IO Interactive will give anyone who pre-ordered the game or bought it within the first 10 days of release the Hitman 1 Game of the Year Access Pass.
