IO Interactive plans on rolling out HDR support in Hitman 2016 on January 31st, adding support for the new display standard on all platforms with the exception of the Xbox One (non-S). 

This new option will allow the game to take advantage of premium HDR displays, allowing the game to better showcase bright and dark images as well as better simulate explosions, the sun and other details in bright environments. 

Below is a comment from IO Interactive's chief programmer, Anders Wang Kristensen, who gives several examples that will help explain the benefits of HDR in Hitman. 

 

      As an example, think of 47 in a dark room looking out a bright window. Without HDR you would not be able make out what's outside, whereas with HDR you can simultaneously see details inside the room and outside the window,

Another extreme example is the sun. Without HDR we could not render the sun brighter than a white piece of paper, so we had to ‘simulate’ the sun being blinding. With HDR we can draw the sun several times brighter, so that it is actually close to being blinding, just like in real life.
