Pushed back: Hitman isn't due for release until well into 2016, specifically March.

Revealed in a trailer at this year's E3, upcoming videogame Hitman has seen its launch delayed from Dec 8 to March 2016. 

A post from the game's developer, Io Interactive, explained, "These few extra months will mean we can add more to the launch content of the game, more than we had originally planned, and then follow with a tighter frequency of updates, which ultimately will create a better game for everyone." 

The studio said that the delay was mainly due to the game's "scope and ambition" as well as the "size of the game world itself." 

It plans to release "a good chunk of the game" at the start and then add remaining locations over time. 

The game will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC. — AFP Relaxnews
