Hitman 3 includes a level that is a clear homage to murder stories from authors like Agatha Christie and the Lady of Murder she wrote… As part of this level, players can even force Agent 47 to take on the detective role and solve the murder. It’s a tight scene that IO Interactive has packed with lots of detail. And one of those details is what looks like a nod to the 2019 detective blockbuster. Knives out…
In the film, Don Johnson’s character throws an old baseball out of an office window. The other characters constantly find the ball throughout the film. But he also appears in Hitman 3 as an Easter egg reminiscent of this movie.
Just like Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc Knives out, players can find a baseball sitting in the grass outside the office window at the level of the Dartmoor mansion in Hitman 3.
It’s just a funny nod Knives out, I suppose that. Moreover, baseballs are not common in British country estates.
However, there is no word yet on whether Don Johnson is sneaking into Hitman 3.
