Square Enix's plans to offer gamers a reboot of its popular Hitman action franchise will be pushed back by a few months. The company has announced that the game, which was originally due on Dec. 8 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms, will now be released sometime in March 2016.

Originally, the plan was to release the new Hitman game with only a certain amount of content, with more to be offered after its launch in DLC packs. The delay from December 2015 to March 2016 will alter those plans somewhat. Square Enix says:

"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. And in the end, that's what we're all looking for."

The publisher and developer Io Interactive will reveal more details about their release plans for Hitman next week.
