Two days ago, the developers of Hitman 3 announced that it would not be possible to transfer content from the first two parts purchased on Steam to the EGS version of the game. Now it became known that there is still a chance.
Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney confirmed that his company is working with IO Interactive to find a way to fix the situation. According to him, no one would deliberately create such circumstances, but there are reasons that Epic Games wants to deal with.
Sorry, our team, along with IO, is already looking for a way to fix the situation. Epic would never intentionally create a situation in which the owner of a game on Steam would have to buy it again from the Epic Games Store in order to gain access to all its features.
How everything will work is not yet clear. More details can be expected later, when the developers of Hitman 3 and Epic Games solve all the difficulties and provide details of transferring content from one store to another.
However, now IO provides the opportunity to get the Hitman 1 GOTY Access Pass for free. It will be issued to buyers of Hitman 3 in EGS – you can pick it up within the first 10 days of release.
Hitman 3 will be a temporary Epic Games Store exclusive. The release is scheduled for January 20 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Stadia.
