Hitman’s first Elusive Target has been delayed. To keep players occupied in the meantime, Escalation Contracts will fill the void.

IO Interactive said it will release two Escalation Contracts each week until closer to the planned April release of Sapienza. A release date for Sapienza will be announced next week.

From today, two new Escalation Contracts are available for Hitman: The Osterman Mosaic and The Gemini Fiasco

The Osterman Mosaic tasks the player with a variety of different objectives and a sabre will be used to eliminate a target.

The Gemini Fiasco makes use of the fan-favorite Helmut Kruger and there are complications involved in the objective which will force players to figure out a different approach.

Also, fans of the dapper vampire disguise can look forward to The Vampire Magician Challenge Pack. It will be released “over the coming weeks.”

It comes with ten new challenges “inspired by community activity,” and all require the player to wear the kooky outfit. This pack will drop for all three platforms with a game update, which will also fix a variety of things in the game.

For more information on the Elusive Targets delay, the upcoming Escalation Contracts, be sure to have a look at the game’s Steam page. You can also head over to the official website for more intel.
