The upcoming Hitman game is set to be not only big, but a more “return to form” type of title with Agent 47 in his prime doing what he does best.
In a statement on their blog, IO Interactive revealed they were going to delay Hitman until 2016 to best ensure the quality of the game.
“We’re going for a new release model where we put out a good chunk of the game when it beings and then release the remaining locations over time. We want to make absolutely sure you all get the best possible experience when you join, so we’ve made the difficult decision to move the initial release date to March 2016,” IO-Interactive said on its blog.
“These few extra months will mean we can add more to the launch content of the game, more than we had originally planned, and then follow with a tighter frequency of updates, which ultimately will create a better game for everyone. And in the end, that’s what we’re all looking for.”
“Moving a launch date is never an easy decision, we know it’s frustrating to have to wait a bit longer for the game, but we truly believe it will mean we can deliver a better launch and overall experience. We’ll share more details next week about the full release schedule and scope of Hitman in general so keep a look out for that.”
We’ll of course keep you informed on the release date of Hitman the moment it becomes official.
