IO Interactive has officially confirmed that the Hitman trilogy will get a significant file size reduction in the near future as the team is currently working to compress files. All three games with all of the DLC content will now take up around 100 GB upon the completion of compressing the files down, the result of this will be a more polished experience through backward compatibility.
“One thing I think all of you will be happy to hear is that we have managed to get the size of the game down significantly,” said a developer at IO Interactive on a recent ResetEra post. “All three games with all content will take up around 100 GB… it’s backward compatible with the previous two games in the trilogy and lots of surfaces have been upgraded.”
Considering a developer at IO Interactive is confident enough to tell ResetEra that the file size of the Hitman trilogy will be reduced, it’ll be interesting to see if the file compression is available on the day Hitman 3 releases.
Hitman 3 is releasing for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and on PC through the Epic Games Store on January 20th.
