Hitman won't come out on disc until January 2017

If you were hoping to buy a physical copy of Agent 47's new adventures, you'll have to wait a little while longer than we thought. IO Interactive told VideoGamer (opens in new tab) that Hitman (opens in new tab)'s disc version is now planned for January 2017, pushed back from its former late 2016 release window, though it's not saying why.

The entire first season (opens in new tab) of Hitman is still expected to roll out digitally by the end of 2016, seven episodes and six major locations in all. The retail version, which bundles it all together, was the only part to get a little push. IO Interactive has made a big show of online support for the game, with time-limited Elusive Targets and other live events (opens in new tab), but I can certainly understand wanting to sit down and play it all at once rather than waiting for the digital drip feed.

Though as a big fan of (most of) the Hitman series, and as someone who usually enjoys episodic games, I'm totally tearing into Paris when it comes out tomorrow.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
