Maurizio de Pascale, CTO of IO Interactive, has confirmed that Hitman 3 will get ray tracing on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in a future update. The news comes from an interview with Xbox Wire so Pascale doesn’t mention the PlayStation 5 but it’s almost certain that the PS5 will also get ray tracing support.

Here’s what Pascale had to say:

We see Hitman as a ‘live game’ and our launch date on January 20 is just the beginning of a journey, in which we’re going to keep working on the game and adding new features. It’s great that the GPU in the Series X|S has hardware support for Ray-Tracing. We’ve already started working on RT technology for the renderer in our Glacier engine, and once that’s deemed ready for prime time, we’ll definitely bring it to the Series X|S hardware.
