Hello Hitman Subreddit!
Being a student in game development and loving fan of the Hitman series, I decided to take on the task of re-creating some of our favorite missions in all Hitman games pre-absolution with the exception of blood money!
Since IO wouldn't do it themselves, I decided to dedicate my time making this dream come true! Starting June I will work on this project since summer break starts for me and will continue to work on it on free time . However I need some help from you guys deciding which missions from codename 47 to contracts that you would like to see me recreate!
In order to do this there will be several polls that will help me decide which missions to recreate along with other important questions that need to answered. Below will be all of the strawpolls for all of the questions that need to be answered.
Which engine will you use to recreate the Hitman missions?
I will be using the help of Unreal Engine 4 to recreate the missions!
How long will this project take and how will you keep us updated?
This project is a very long term project that i assume will take anywhere from 1-3 years depending on how much time i devote and the level of difficulty of some of the missions that you guys will choose. I will keep you guys updated via this subreddit, my youtube channel, and the hitman fourms. Links to all of those strawpolls will be below!
What if you abandon this project?
I will try my best to keep on going with this project and keep going until i choose not to continue it due to lack of motivation, however not to worry i will update you guys every 1-3 months on progress and will always announce if I choose to close down project/abandon it.
Will this be free?
Of course! This project will always be free or else a lawsuit from IO will arrive at my doorstep for profiting off their assets.
Is this an individual project?
Yes, this is an individual project. However i will be needing some help here and there from this awesome community.
How similar will the remakes be to the originals?
That will be something you will vote on in the straw polls. I have two ideas in mind: Create the remakes with most similar level design and animations, however make AI way better than originals since hitman 2 silent assassin was pretty bad in terms of AI and codename and some of contracts, or Create the remakes with most similar level design and animations while keeping the same exact AI which would make this remake just a visual upgrade with updated graphics and nothing else.
Also something you will also vote on will be which Agent 47 model from codename, SA, and contracts or blood money you would like to see in the remake. To elaborate, with this being a single game with remakes of missions from the 3 games, the remake has to use 1 agent 47 model from one of the games listed above to be used in the remake.
Why isnt Hitman Blood Money being included in this remake?
The reason why blood money has been excluded from this reamke is because the game really dosent look that bad visually and the AI functions as it should not glitchy unlike some of the other games. Thus Hitman blood money has been excluded. I might choose to remake some of its levels wayyy later when I have much more knowledge. You've got to realize that blood money was made with a huge team, im only one guy lol.
What is the purpose of this remake then?
The purpose of this reamke is to #1: Give the older Hitman games a visual bump, #2: Rework the AI that is pretty dated and glitchy, and lastly #3: to get to enjoy the best Hitman levels IO has made in a brand new updated way!
Are you going to remake multiple levels from Hitman codename 47, Contracts, and Silent Assassin?
For now im going to remake 4 levels from each game totaling to 12 levels for the entire remake.
