Although Hitman launches digitally tomorrow on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, those who are adverse to adding their credit card details online or just don’t want to accept that digital titles are the future, you may have a wait on your hands in order to get a physical copy of Hitman.
Square Enix has today revealed that the physical boxed edition of Hitman won’t be released until next year.
Originally set to launch before the year’s end, the publisher has revealed that they’ve delayed the game in an effort to make sure the disc version of the game is just as good as the digital release.
In a statement to Videogamer, Square Enix said:
“This year is all about delivering the best episodic experience for Hitman and that takes us to Autumn/Fall. Releasing the disc version in January just makes sure we have enough time after the season concludes to dedicate to getting the best disc version of the game out.”
The disc version of the game is set to launch in January 2017.
When the game launches on March 11, you’ll be able to purchase the Intro Pack for £11.99 on consoles or £10.99 on PC, however it’ll only give you the Prologue and the first Paris mission, the other locations will be available for £7.99 a pop.. There’s also the Full Experience which you’ll be able to purchase for £44.99 on consoles or £39.99 on PC, this edition will grant players to all the content as it’s released.
There’s currently no word on how much the retail version will cost, we only know that it’ll include the same content as the Full Experience at that point in time.
