I got in on the same deal back in July. Pretty sweet set, especially at the price of $38 + tax.

I've been tracking the collector's edition price, once it's under $50, I'll bite... the 10" statue looks great

Re: Hitman (2016: X1, PS4, PC)

So the first "season" is now available digitally, but I think I'll wait till 1/31 for that steelbook version. I have plenty of games to hold me over.

What was the consensus - did everyone who play it end up liking it?

Re: Hitman (2016: X1, PS4, PC)

Well, since they have the first season for almost half the price right now (PSN's Black Friday sale), I think I'll get that now, instead of waiting 2 months and paying full price for a disc and a steelbook.

Re: Hitman (2016: X1, PS4, PC)

I was wondering if the Steelbook was worth the extra $10 or so it will cost me over the PSN sale on the digital version. It probably isn't, but I'm not sure the digital one comes with the documentary and the soundtrack, so there's that....

Re: Hitman (2016: X1, PS4, PC)

My copy from Amazon shipped today. I haven't really started anything new lately, so this will probably be my next game for a bit until the onslaught of Horizon/Mass Effect/Zelda.

They also sent me a code for $5 off my next game purchase. That was a cool surprised since I didn't see anything mentioned when I preordered it.

Re: Hitman (2016: X1, PS4, PC)

I got the code too!

Unfortunately, I already bough the game digitally and apparently forgot to cancel my pre-order of the Steelbook.

Now I've got to figure out how to return that without getting charged. Maybe they don't charge return shipping if you use their Locker?

Re: Hitman (2016: X1, PS4, PC)

I'm enjoying this game a lot. Honestly, the episodic release was probably the smart way to go for them. Since I know there is a small chance of going back to previous levels when everything is unlocked now.

SQUARE ENIX PARTS WITH HITMAN STUDIO IO INTERACTIVE

Square Enix has declared its decision to withdraw from Danish developer Io Interactive. The company made the announcement alongside its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017 – released today.

“To maximize player satisfaction as well as market potential going forward, we are focusing our resources and energies on key franchises and studios,” Square Enix said in its statement. “As a result, the Company has regrettably decided to withdraw from the business of Io Interactive, a wholly‐owned subsidiary and a Danish corporation, as of March 31, 2017.”

Io Interactive – the developer of Hitman and Kane & Lynch – found itself in the Square Enix stable back in 2009 when the Japanese publisher acquired Io’s parent company, Eidos Interactive.

What the news means for the future of the studio itself and the Hitman series is unclear. Last year’s Hitman Season 1 left the current story in limbo and, as of August last year, Io Interactive was planning for three seasons of the episodic game.

Io Interactive has been focused entirely on the Hitman series since 2013, when the studio laid off half of its staff and cancelled all non-Hitman projects and initiatives.

Word of the split comes alongside news that Square Enix has otherwise enjoyed “record-high net sales, operating income, ordinary income and profit attributable to owners of parent” for the fiscal year.

I'm guessing sales of the last Hitman game didn't light the world on fire. It's unfortunate though, because the game is really good.

Hitman Rights To Be Retained by IO Interactive, Season Two Still on the Cards - Report

German website Gamestar reports that the rights to Hitman will be retained by IO Interactive, and the developer still plans to roll out Season Two of the game in the not-too-distant future.

According to the site (which cites reliable sources for its report), Hitman: Season Two is roughly 50% through development, on track for a release in 2018. We've heard before that IO plans to release three seasons of the game - there is no word on the status of the third installation at the moment.

“We can not reveal any further details on the origin of this information, but we would like to state that the information is absolutely reliable and secure,” said Gamestar. “And we expect that IO will officially comment on it next week.”

There is no official word from either Square Enix or IO Interactive on the matter, but if Gamestar is correct, we can expect more official information on Hitman's future soon.
