Hitman Delayed to 2016; Will Launch with New Release Model

It appears that videogame developers really need better project managers because their schedules and deadline suck. What would be the zillionth time in the past year or so, another game has been delayed for a couple of months and this time it is Hitman.

While the developers claim that the change has come because they are implementing “a new release model,” I doubt the fans are going to approve of the extra wait.

It doesn’t matter how technically you try to spin the news because the fact of the matter is they weren’t able to fulfill the promises made. Anyhow, here’s what the developers have announced:

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.

They add that with the extra months they will be able to increase the quantity of content that the game releases with and also ensure that regular and frequent content updates are made after the release of Hitman.

An infographic was also shared to compare the size of the upcoming Hitman and one of its missions with a mission from Absolution. You can check it out below.
