Square Enix has pushed back the release date of Hitman to March 2016.
F*ck f*uck.... damn damn i wanted this so bad this year
Worried that it might be eclipsed by Uncharted 4, I think February or April would have been a better launch month
We already get Just Cause 3 from SE. Its really not a good idea publishing two games from the same company at a similar time. Because it could hurt the sales of the other game.
That's a great point. I guess I can wait until March for Hitman. We already have enough to play this holiday.
Yeah i forgot jc3 is coming dec1. No worry then
Isn't the division coming allso 2016 march ??
The Division Uncharted 4 Hitman March will be a crowded month for sure :)
SFV as well, and isn't Quantum Break on track for a march release? ReCore has a Spring release window so it could be march or april. Gonna be insane, honestly that lineup blows the Holiday 2015 one out of the water for my tastes. Of course Uncharted 4 is all I really need.
You forgot Dark Souls 3 unless you're not a fan edit: nvm forgot it was April
"Hitman delayed to March 2016" Not surprising. After the backlash they took for the episodic content, I expected a delay.
Read the article. The delay has nothing to do with the episodic content, unfortunately.
At least it was delayed to add more content.
Kyouka Suigetsu activate *My power is Fire*. To my rage!
They may aswell release the full thing at this rate
I was thinking the same thing, but seeing how popular it is to release free DLC in the weeks and months after release, I could see why IO would mimic that. Or at least I HOPE it's free DLC.
Honestly it will most likely be content they've already made but will call it "Free DLC" to boost their reputation.
Maybe offer both options like Sony did with Siren for PS3.
i know it !
Wow march 2016 is going to be jam packed with new releases. March is the new November.
Welp. Back to Contracts for me!
So can we get the full game instead of this cash grab experiment theyre doing?
How is it a cash grab when they arent charging for any of the other content?
As a hitman fan thank god! This was for the best and believe me I absolutely hate delays with all my heart lol but I'm happy as heck about this delay. It without a doubt in my mind would've released unfinished, not very good and few missions (with more to come over time) This was needed and I'll buy it day 1 in march but I definitely wasn't buying day 1 with it's orginal release date after the uncertainty the devs were having.
Well that was annoying. Was looking forward to December 1st :(. I suppose Just Cause 3 will have to do.
Wasn't going to get this till next year anyway. I want it on disc 👍 oh well it be more polished I hope with this delay.
I would be way more excited for this if they released it as a full retail game instead of this chopped up episodic format. I'm ok with the episodic format if its a smaller budget game but AAA releases should always have a traditional retail release in my eyes.
Same here. This also isn't the kind of traditional episodic game that we are accustomed to in that they are asking the full retail price up front in lieu of letting players pay piecemeal. I know a lot of people would go ahead and buy the full game early but when you had the option for that w/ things like The Walking Dead, you would get a discount for doing so, which was really the whole incentive. Square needs to either ditch the episodic idea entirely or communicate very clearly what will be included in the first installment and offer it a discounted rate, otherwise you'd have to be a gigantic Hitman fan to be taken advantage of so hard. There are only a handful of franchises that I'll make the leap on sight unseen regardless of what's asked, and Hitman doesn't fit that bill for me personally.
I would never have bought this in 2015 anyways. Holiday is way too packed. Plus 7 launch scenarios for a single player game is laughable. This had to happen. Looking forward to it though. I loved Bloodmoney and actually really like Absolution.
They only made one level didn't they?
2016 is going to be one of the best years in gaming! Mark my words!
What the hell has been with all the delays this generation? It's out of control.
No better or worse than previous generations
No one should be surprised by this. Square Enix has a ridiculous amount of games in development right now and a poor track record of releasing things, this will be the first of many delays.
March confirmed as biggest month in 2016 or what?
