Hitman delayed until March 2016

Hitman has been delayed until March 2016.

IO Interactive has decided to delay the game for quality purposes and to allow it to include more content at launch than initially planned.

"It’s safe to say Hitman is the biggest venture we’ve ever undertaken at Io-Interactive," the studio said on its website.

"Not just in terms of scope and ambition but also in terms of the size of the game world itself. The playable area and density of our locations goes beyond anything we’ve built before. We’re striving to create a series of living, breathing worlds in those locations and we get pretty obsessed about every detail that you’ll experience.

"On top of that, we’re going for a new release model where we put out a good chunk of the game when it begins 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. 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."

Hitman was due to release this December, that's obviously no longer the case.

Not the worse news for hitman, since not releasing the whole story in one go..... plenty other games out in that time. @Andrew , They always send pre order games 2-1 days before Release date
