Hitman still technically releases on the same day, but at about one-third the size. Only two missions—the Prologue and one set in Paris—will make the March release. The other two that were planned for the initial release, set in Italy and Morocco, will now follow in April and May respectively.
This whole thing seems like code for “we need more time” which, as a fan of the series, is disappointing to hear.
Though if it’s this or something that even remotely resembles the structure of MGSV, I’ll take my chances with Agent 47.
