After a bit of carry-on and perhaps some A few weeks ago, it was announced that players would be able to transfer their Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 content into Hitman 3 on all console and PC systems. After a bit of carry-on and perhaps some disappointment from the community, it now appears that developer IO Interactive will soon allow PC users to transfer their data from Steam to their Epic Games account after some uncertainties at first.
A recent report states that a solution has been worked out and is being tested, and even with conservative estimates, import features between the two digital platforms will become available this month. Taking to Twitter earlier in January, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said IO was looking into it and that there was never intention that those who bought Hitman 3 on Steam would have to rebuy it for Epic.
The original intention was to allow players to transfer levels and locations from both Hitman 1 and 2, and allow for the transfer of Hitman 2 player profiles. However, it's worth noting that Hitman 2 isn't available through Epic and the only way for fans to get hold of it would be to buy the access pass, which could potentially see people paying nearly $100 including the DLC. Understandably, some may consider that to be too expensive for DLC game content.
Sorry, the team is looking into this with IO. It’s never Epic’s intent to create a situation where someone who owns a game on Steam would have to buy it again on Epic Games Store to get the full benefits of it.

The announcement of data transfer to Hitman 3 content is likely to be good news for PC gamers, but some may see it as an issue which should have been resolved much sooner. Epic Games giving away free games might be able to placate them for a bit. Hopefully, now that a workaround is being tested and promises of transfers coming very soon, it won't mar the otherwise spotless reputation of the Hitman franchise. Having said that, it seems things have come quite a long way seeing as at one point there didn't seem to be any way to import Steam content into Epic, so that's progress.
The Hitman 3 was released in January 2021 to favorable reviews and, like all the games in the Hitman series, chronicles the exploits of Agent 47 as he continues the plot of the previous game. It's considered a strong sequel with reviewers praising Hitman 3's impressive level design and ability for players to create their own content. It's arguably one of the most popular stealth games around, especially with the likes of Splinter Cell dropping off the radar. Although, with a new Splinter Cell game rumored to be in development, only time will tell which of the stealth franchises will come out on top.
