Hitman HD Enhanced Collection
It seems that, for now, the Hitman HD Enhanced Collection is only launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The console version is due for release on January 11th 2019, but IO Interactive have not made any comment regarding a PC release.
“We’re very happy with this collection and how we were able to update and remaster two of our classic Hitman titles for modern consoles,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO at IO Interactive. “Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution have helped us on our journey to where we are today, and we’re looking forward to players enjoying them in 4K and 60 fps.”
The remasters of both Blood Money and Absolution will feature improved visuals and will run at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. It will include updated textures, improved shadows, super-sampling and upscale support. The controls have also been updated to offer a more “fluid” experience.
The digital edition of Hitman HD Enhanced Collection releases next week on January 11th on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Hitman: Blood Money and its sequel, Hitman: Absolution are both great games of the series. No doubt, experiencing the classic assassination simulators in 4K would be a great experience for many, especially on the PC.
Currently, there is no official word about the possibility of a PC release. Neither publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment nor the developer have said anything about Hitman HD Enhanced Collection on PC.
