Hitman 2 Hotfix Update Released On PC For Phenom CPU And HDR Fix

IO Interactive has released a short hotfix update for Hitman 2 on PC today. Here’s what is included in the patch notes.

Hitman 2 has just launched on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. IO Interactive is rather quick to react to any complaints or issues and has now released the first hotfix on PC for those who have a Phenom CPU and are crashing to desktop as a result. The other fix is for HDR on PC.

Here are all the details around this new update that was released on November 16.

We have released a hotfix for HITMAN 2 that addresses two critical that we’ve seen reported since launch. The download will be approximately 200mb.

HDR Fix
We’ve made a change to our HDR setup on PC. It is now possible to play HITMAN 2 in HDR in Exclusive Fullscreen. For this to work, it is necessary to disable the ‘HDR and WCG’ option in Windows 10 under the ‘Display’ menu.
We’re continuing to work on and improve this feature in future updates.

Phenom CPU Fix
We’ve fixed an issue that could cause players with an AMD Phenom CPU to crash to desktop when launching a HITMAN 2 mission. This issue should no longer occur.

We’re also continuing to look at all issues reported and working on fixes for future updates.

Hitman 2 is available now on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can read our review of the game from here.
