Agent 47 won’t be rearing his head till next year thanks to the latest delay for the slate of originally scheduled Holiday 2015 offerings.

Announced just this year the E3 show in June, the game was first scheduled to arrive in early December, and in a downloadable, episodic format only.

Now though, Io says that the title needs a little more time in the incubator in order to add in more content in the massive game world that the have planned. The company elaborates, saying that this is the biggest game that they’ve ever worked on, and hints that the scope is just too big to rush it.
