According to a leaked presentation, Square Enix's upcoming Hitman game is also on the list of titles that will have support for DirectX 12 API. 

The confirmation comes in a form of a blurry screenshot of the Hitman presentation seen during PC Gamer Weekender. According to the presentation, the new Hitman will be will indeed have support Microsoft's DirectX 12 API and bring several improvements including better multithreading, increased CPU bound performance, better experience for laptop gamers and support for asynchronous compute on AMD Radeon graphics card.

Earlier in February, AMD has announced that it has teamed up with IO Interactive on the new Hitman game which will also be a part of AMD's Gaming Evolved and feature performance optimizations as well as unique DirectX 12 hardware features.

Hopefully, the DirectX 12 support in Hitman will bring benefits to the game rather than problems seen with some earlier launched titles with DirectX 12 support. The slide also reveals that Square Enix will continue expanding and improving on the DirectX 12 experience in future releases.

The new Hitman game from Square Enix and IO Interactive is scheduled to launch on March 11th.
