Epic Investigating HITMAN 2/3 Ownership Problem

Tim Sweeney tweets that Epic is working with IO Interactive to find a way for those who own HITMAN 2 on Steam to be able to play the game's missions in HITMAN 3 without an additional purchase. When HITMAN 3 was announced IO promised that players would be able to import the levels from the previous two HITMAN games. But a HITMAN 3 Pre-Launch Guide released the other day said that since HITMAN 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store, which does not carry HITMAN 2, content from the second game would require an additional purchase. Now the Epic CEO says their working to avoid this being the case:
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.
