HITMAN 3 Becoming World of Assassination

IO Interactive announces that as of January 26th, the name of HITMAN 3 will change to World of Assassination. This is the realization of goals for the series dating back to the announcement of HITMAN in 2015. This is also "drastically simplifying" the purchase process, which had become increasingly complicated with each new game in the series. Word is: "Essentially, these two changes will mean that all new players and existing HITMAN 3 owners will have the same base content ownership. There will be no more confusion over which edition to buy, what content you own, how to redeem Legacy packs or import locations, etc. We’re done with that." All HITMAN 3 players will receive a free upgrade to the new edition on all platforms. Once the change is in place there will be only two purchase choices for potential players:
We’re approaching these changes with a no compromises approach. We want to make absolutely sure that the experience of entering or enjoying the World of Assassination is simple and straightforward.

Let’s break it down. We’re streamlining the (many) offerings currently on the stores down to two products. These will replace existing ways to buy HITMAN 1, HITMAN 2 or HITMAN 3.

  • HITMAN – World of Assassination (approx. $70 USD or local equivalent)
    Includes: HITMAN 3, plus H1 GOTY Access Pass and H2 Standard Access Pass.
  • HITMAN – World of Assassination Deluxe Pack (approx. $30 USD or local equivalent)
    Includes: H3 Deluxe Pack, H3 Seven Deadly Sins Collection and H2 Expansion Access Pass.

For those who really can't figure it out:

The $70 pack is HITMAN 1, 2 & 3
The $30 pack is the DLC

What I can't figure out is if I need to buy Hitman3 now to save money or will it be discounted in the future because I already own 1 and 2 (and I think the dlc that lets me play 1 inside 2's game/engine whatever). Or is this a scam to screw over the people with just the first 2 games? Meh, I haven't really played them so I'll probably pass on buying H3 cheap and wait the next x years for drastic price drops or more bundle deals.

I think I even have access to 1 or 2 on PS+.
