...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

HITMAN™ III, HITMAN™ 3 (2021), or HITMAN™ 3: This Subtitle Joke Has Gotten Old Now is a stealth-action/conspiracy thriller that serves as the finale of the story arc first started in Hitman. The previous two games also got added to this game as Mission Pack DLCs, so now all of the games are under one roof, and it only took them five years!

A lot of the unused content present in Hitman and Hitman 2 can be found here as well, and while they share the same general file structure, IO Interactive did some general cleanup of assets while optimising the game, so not everything is accounted for from those entries. Anything of interest to the first two games should be added to their pages, not here.

Unused Audio

Chongqing Data Oddities

The Data facility cutscene in Chongqing has some interesting oddites and oversights; Sister Yulduz and Klaus Lieblied from the "Patient Zero" campaign are missing from the database, as are the Hitman 2 Elusive Targets, Wazir Kale, the 2016 Bonus Episode targets (Dino Bosco, Marco Abiatti, Matthieu Mendola, and Kong Tuo-Kwang), the Special Assignment targets (Dmitri Federov, Basil Carnaby, Blair Reddington, Ajit Krish, Galen Vholes), the Sarejevo Six (a bunch of PS4-exclusive contracts), as well as the Sniper Assassin targets being missing too (Dorian Lang, Guilliaume Maison, Doris Lee, Re Thak, Lhom Kawai, Jin Noo, Vitaly Reznikov, and Roman Khabko). All these being missing are very odd omissions, despite some of the background NPC's referencing these characters in-game. There's also the matter of the below oddities too:

The Caruso Brothers, an unused Elusive Target from the first game in the trilogy, reappears here in the ICA Files.

|Hitman3 serena.png
Serena Washington was the codename used by Sophia Washington in Hitman 2's game files (which also accidentally leaked into the main game's bio for her before the first patch fixed it). History repeats, and her codename has now accidentally been left in here too.
