Delayed to 2016 last week, developer Io-Interactive announced today that Hitman is first releasing on March 11, 2016 as a digital download for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
With the initial wave of content on March 11, you’ll receive three locations – Paris, Sapienza and Marrakesh – featuring six campaign missions. For Contracts mode, you’ll find “a combined pool of around 800 targets to craft your devious Contracts from.”
Also in March, live content will begin, which consists of live, time-limited targets, weekly IOI developed Contracts, and promoted content built by users.
Following the March launch, one new sandbox location will be added per month in April (Thailand), May (USA), and June (Japan). Each location includes additional missions, signature kills, more Contracts targets, new disguises, weapons, and ways to take out your target.
Here’s a quick rundown of the planned content schedule:
