Sony has sneakily bagged itself an early 2021 exclusive this month with the launch of Hitman 3. While Hitman 3 itself is multi-platform, the VR version of the game is currently exclusive to PlayStation VR. That could change in the future though, as dataminers have discovered evidence of a PC version.
Hitman 3 VR could be coming to PC. Reddit user u/UnwantedTelemarketer took to the site to share some code references they found while digging through the Hitman 3 PC files. The PC version does include files for the VR version of the game.
Not only are there a ton of VR files in the PC version, but there are also specific references to Oculus, indicating that the game can run on PC headsets and not just PSVR.
At the moment, Sony seems to have a timed exclusive deal in place for Hitman 3 on PSVR, so it could be a while before it comes to PC. Still, the files are there, so we should get access to this version eventually.
KitGuru Says: Hopefully IO Interactive does eventually unlock VR support for the PC version. I’m still quite disappointed that Capcom never did that for Resident Evil VII, even after the exclusivity deal ran its course. Would many of you like to try Hitman 3 in VR on a PC?
