If you pre-ordered the digital edition of Hitman on PlayStation 4, chances are you woke up to some bad news – digital pre-orders have been cancelled for Hitman by IO Interactive.
Reports say that Sony has sent out a message of cancellation to those who pre-ordered the digital edition of the game on PlayStation 4. The message replicates that of a notice posted by PlayStation support staff yesterday:
“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 As a result we have withdrawn the current pre-order from PlayStation Store and will cancel all existing pre-orders. If you have pre-ordered the game, 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.”
Square Enix has also approached users, issuing the following statement, urging PlayStation 4 owners to not panic:
“If your Hitman preorder is cancelled, don’t panic. Release date is still March 11. We’re adjusting a few things & will update in a few days,” the publisher said on Twitter.
The beta for Hitman, which is given to those who pre-ordered the game is aimed to launch on February 12; it’s not clear whether this issue will affect the beta.
Hitman is set to officially launch on March 11, 2016.
