The Hitman 2016 Steam page also mentions how the upcoming episodes will be made available.

The Season Pass description for all of Season 1’s 7 episodes also confirms it’s coming this year, it reads: “Remaining content will be available as six releases periodically throughout 2016.”

Episode 6 Story Details:

Episode 6 Synopsis: Unconfirmed as of yet, but as you can see in our “Hitman 2016 – Episode 5: Colorado Walkthrough“, the Episode 5 ending suggests Agent 47 will not be sent after the shadow client who’s been tracking his movements for a long time now, instead he has to deal with Providence who has infiltrated the ICA with Erich Soders as their operative.

The season began with a Prologue and Paris location in March, continued with Episode 2: Sapienza in April, Episode 3: Marrakesh in May, the Summer Bonus Episode in July, Episode 4: Bangkok in August and now Episode 5: Colorado in September.

Episode 5: Colorado is a key episode for the game’s story and adds serious momentum to what has happened already. There are major revelations set to be revealed and that episode has set up an intriguing season finale.

To quote Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive: “This is one of the toughest episodes yet. Not only do you have four targets, but from the moment you set foot in Colorado you’re on enemy ground. ‘Freedom Fighters’ is a key episode, which will add serious momentum to the story and set up an intriguing season finale for players.”

As for Season 2 & 3…

“It’s called Season 1? Does that mean there will be a second season?”, I hear you ask. Yes is the answer! While it’s not yet been greenlit (Season 1 needs to sell well first) the developers have already confirmed they have enough ideas for two more years of Hitman with a potential Season 2 and even Season 3! 😀

When asked about their Season 2 plans, the official Hitman Twitter account replied. To quote: “Of course, our plan is to have three seasons. Although Season Two hasn’t been confirmed yet.”
