A new Hitman game was announced not too long ago at E3 and was slated for a December release. Now Io Interactive has stated their ambitious Hitman game has been pushed back to March 2016.
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.
The new game seems to be the biggest yet in the franchise so it’s understandable the studio would push it back in order to deliver the best experience possible when it launches. That should give everyone time to sharpen those Hitman skills.
