Today, PlayStation notified users via a message that they are cancelling pre-orders for Square Enix’s upcoming release, Hitman due to the product “changing significantly”.
The full message reads “Thank you for pre-ordering Hitman. The publisher has notified us that the configuration of the product you pre-ordered has changed significantly. As a result we have withdrawn the current pre-order from PlayStation Store and will cancel all pre-orders. You will receive email confirmation when your pre-order has been cancelled. A revised pre-order for Hitman will be available on the store soon.”
It appears the game is still expected to hit its release date of March 11.
We reached out to Square Enix and received the following response: “If your HITMAN pre-order is cancelled, don’t panic. Release date is still March 11th. We’re adjusting a few things & will update in a few days. Sorry for any confusion.”
The beta for Hitman is still set to launch on Feb. 12 for PlayStation and Feb. 19 for Xbox One.
