Update: Hitman 3's progression carryover site is down, IOI currently working on a fix

By Sean Carey,
Update: IO Interactive has provided several updates on Hitman 3's progression carryover process. The developer tweeted yesterday that it was working on fixing server issues that were stopping players from transferring their Hitman 2 progress into Hitman 3. Although IOI hasn't given an update on the server fixes today, it seems that many of you have now been able to transfer your progress, so if you still haven't imported yours yet, it might be worth trying to do so now.

Original Story: Hitman 3 launches today, and thanks to a shared progression system, players can transfer their Hitman 2 progress directly into the new game, unlocking Hitman 3 achievements, and getting access to their weapons and Mastery Level progress from Hitman 2. However, players are reporting that they either can not log in to their IOI accounts, or access the transfer website, leaving them unable to play Hitman 3. IO Interactive says it's investigating.

The issue that's stopping players from immediately jumping into Agent 47's latest outing is that the progression carryover process will wipe existing progress in Hitman 3. If you were to go through and start playing the game, your unlocks and Mastery Level progress would be deleted in Hitman 3 when you imported your gear and progression from Hitman 2.

IO Interactive has acknowledged these issues in a tweet (thanks, VGC) saying that everyone is trying to play Hitman 3 at once. "We're tracking and will have everyone in the game with their progress as soon as possible." The developer in a further tweet said that it's working hard on getting IOI accounts back online and asks players to keep an eye on the IOI Twitter page instead of refreshing its website.

This is obviously a big deal for the achievement hunting community as players can automatically unlock numerous achievements from Hitman and Hitman 2 simply by transferring their progress into the new game — which saves them hours of time and from having to replay previous levels again.

While you're waiting for IOI to get their servers up and running, why not check out our Hitman 3 review? We gave the game a glowing review thanks to its flawless performance, brilliant level design, and superb conclusion to 47's story.
