by Ivonne Vazquez


Travis Barbour, the Communications Manager for IO Interactive has been posting updated news and info on IO’s latest release, Hitman 3The initial thread on the Hitman fan-made forum was made last month, and was last updated on February 5th. Travis states that he will continuously update the thread when either new bugs make themselves present, or if previous bugs are marked as fixed. These are currently all the updates on Travis’ thread.

An update for PC players on location importing:

  • Whilst we’ve been busy launching HITMAN 3, we’ve also been working on the promised solution for allowing PC players to import locations that they already own into HITMAN 3 on Epic. We’ve got that solution worked out and it’s currently being tested and verified from all angles to make it as robust as possible. In terms of timing, it’s definitely a case of sooner rather than later. Even with the longest estimates we’ve looked at, the solution will be fully rolled out before the end of February. We’ll keep you updated with the next steps.
  • Players are unable to reach full mastery in a location due to losing XP, but challenges still marked as complete after experiencing a server disconnect.
    → Status: Tracked. This issue is on our radar.
  • Players cannot access the Requiem Pack
    → Status: We’re aware and working on a solution.
  • Players are not awarded a trophy/achievement despite completing the requirements
    → Status: We’re tracking the ones that are reported to us and investigating a fix.


  • Players cannot access their Deluxe Edition content.
    → Status: FIXED. In-game content (suits and items) are unlocked by completing the Deluxe Escalations. The artbook and digital soundtracks can now be downloaded via your linked IOI Account.
  • PlayStation players are encountering a ‘failed to fetch online resources’ error.
    Status: FIXED: We rolled out a fix to remedy this issue. We’re tracking other reports for future issues.
  • Players are encountering a ‘failed to fetch profile information’ error.
    Status: FIXED. We rolled out an update today (Jan 25) to remedy these issues. We’re tracking any additional reports.
  • Xbox players are unable to access/download the HITMAN 1 GOTY Access Pass, despite being eligible.
    → Status: FIXED. Together with MS, we’ve fixed this issue. The GOTY Access Pass will be automatically applied to Xbox players who meet the requirements. Look for it in your H3 Add-ons. Try restarting your console if you don’t see it. As an alternative, try to install/claim this specific Access Pass on the web store and install it to your console.
  • Players who own the PS4 disc version are unable to access the free PS5 next-gen update.
    → Status: FIXED. Together with Sony, we identified an issue and implemented a fix.
    PS4 disc players should search for the next-gen upgrade on the PSN store.
