Hitman fans are no doubt excited about the new Hitman game. Unfortunately, it seems that those looking for Agent 47 action will have to wait a bit longer before they get their hands on the physical copy of the game. According to reports, the physical release of Hitman has been delayed to January 2017.

Hitman retail release to come in January 2017

The latest Hitman game was released on Steam just a few days ago, but unlike previous Hitman games, this one is being released episodically. For now, only the prologue and the Paris mission are available to players, with additional missions to be added throughout the year.

According to developer Square Enix, there will be a total of seven episodes, with the first new episode planned for April followed by another in May. April’s episode will take players to the vistas of Sapienza, Italy while May’s episode will transport players to Marrakesh, Morocco. As for the remaining locations, they remain unknown for now.

Regarding price, each episode will be sold for $10. Currently, there’s an Intro Pack available on Steam for $15 that includes the aforementioned prologue and Paris mission. Of course, the option to pre-purchase the Complete Edition that includes all seven episodes for $59.99 is also available. 

When asked about the delay, a Square Enix representative said it was to give the developing team more time to work on the disc version in order to bring players the best Hitman experience possible. Although some fans might not be pleased by this decision, we’ll just have to wait until January 2017 before we get our hands on the retail copy of the game, but rest assured — it will certainly be worth the wait.
