Hitman Beta Needs Internet Connection, Full Game Doesn't

Square Enix recently unveiled the details of the upcoming Hitman beta, which is scheduled to begin tomorrow on PlayStation 4 (PC gamers can test it out a week later on February 19).

When it was revealed, the beta FAQ told us we'd need a constant Internet connection.

So, some were assuming the same would be necessary for the full game. The "always on" debate has often been cause for anger in the gaming community. However, Square Enix clarified to Videogamer that in fact, the full product won't require constant connection:

"Yes, you can play the full game offline after you have downloaded an episode. But there are live elements which you will need to access online."

The anticipated Hitman is slated to release on March 11 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. It will be an episodic-like roll-out and the developer offered details on their content plan, which involves a one-time cost and no microtransactions.

Well it IS a BETA after all, what were people expecting?

Does this mean that SE is using an MP engine and then switch to an SP one? Because as far as I know you need different engines for the two. Not two totally different engines mind you, but, two engines nonetheless.

Maybe you just skimmed the article & missed it, but it's only "always on" for the beta, & not the full game, itself.

Not only that... it's literally in the title.
