This is widely known by now. This is datamined from the Hitman files. It will be a bank. But why Swiss, and not Shanghai? (And I don't believe it's a bank robbery, since the Robber disguise is marked as "Unique". With a on-going robbery, there would be multiple robbers. He is just some random dude planning a robbery, similarly to the Mascot guy in Miami planning to blackmail Sierra Knox.)
This guy datamined Hitman files, and found textures for Nazi gold bars:
- Nazi gold texture 1
Nazi gold texture 2
Lot of the Nazi gold from WW2 went into Swiss banks, famous for their banking secrecy.
Here's a Wikipedia article on Swiss banking:
From the top right corner (Image description):
"Swiss banks are known for their banking secrecy and security. Pictured: the Mont Cervin Palace in Zermatt. A hub of tourism, many private banks service the city and maintain underground bunkers and storage facilities for gold at the foothills of the Swiss Alps."
About their vaults and bunkers:
"A handful of larger Swiss banks operate undisclosed or otherwise secretive bank vaults, storage facilities or underground bunkers for gold bars, diamonds, or other valuable physical assets. Most of these underground bunkers are located near or at the foothills of the mountainous regions of the Swiss Alps. These facilities are not subject to the same banking regulations as banks in Switzerland and do not have to report holdings to regulatory agencies. The Swiss defense department estimates that of the ten former military bunkers available for sale, six of them were sold to Swiss banks to house assets during the 1980s and 1990s. Storage in these underground bunkers and bank vaults is typically reserved for clients that pass a multi-stage security clearance."
The latest DLC Winter Pack we got. Climbing and winter sport equipment, which would fit Alps. It was part of the Expansion Pass.
Actually I think the location will be something like
that Wikipedia image of Zermatt, I previously mentioned.
Place like this is not just about banks, but winter sports tourism and skiing. Or the background setting at least, the disguise list in the leak seems to be only Bank related.
I would almost bet on it… Perhaps the target's family/ancestors/company got rich by making a shady deal with the Nazis. He will be a hotshot banker now, or high profile client for the bank. And 47 is sent to take him down. It would also fit the code name "Greedy" that the map has.
This was not all my ideas, I just combined info and ideas of multiple users, into one post.
