With the new 'Hitman,' the game has been positioned in an interesting and odd way. It's been meant to debut as a digital title, with additional content released in the subsequent months for that initial price and an eventual retail version. On top of that, the game had been set to release in December of this year.
Today, Square Enix & IO Interactive have announced that the initial date for 'Hitman' is being moved to March of 2016. According to IO, the extra time will mean more content. Also, the developer wants fans to understand just how big a 'Hitman' game this will be.
More details on the new release schedule have been promised for next week, but it's hard not to like the move. December is tough time to release a game, and 'Hitman' staggered content model seemed like a poor choice for that time. Hopefully, with this change, the initially debut of the game can be more satisfying for players, and make for a successful title.
