In a modern gaming world, the need for storage space is becoming ever more concerning. With titles like Call of Duty and Rainbow Six Siege raking in triple figures-worth of GB space – and new platforms PS5 and Xbox Series X already sweating for breathing room – any title that can economize its file size is worthy of a shout-out.
With its ongoing World of Assassination arc, IO Interactive’s Hitman is already starting to gobble up the HDDs and SSDs of its players. Indeed, a full install of Hitman and Hitman 2 already takes up a whopping 150gb, and with a third title on the horizon, silent assassins across the world are busy rearranging their libraries to find space for the continuing adventures of Agent 47.
However, speaking with PC Gamer, IO Interactive has explained how Hitman 3 will not only be smaller in size than its predecessors but, amazingly, it will actually shrink the combined file size of the entire trilogy. IO estimates that the PC edition of Hitman, Hitman 2, and Hitman 3, will come in at roughly 70-80GB, once all three games are installed. An incredible and very welcome achievement in modern gaming.
