Hitman has more than 12 million players worldwide

IO Interactive has announced that Hitman now has more than 12 million players worldwide. That’s 5 million more players than what the game had back in November 2017. In other words, it took IO Interactive 5 months in order to increase the game’s playerbase to 12 million.

As IO Interactive noted:

“Back in 2015 when we announced HITMAN, we talked about building an expanding and evolving world of assassination. These numbers prove to us that we’re pulling that off and we’re inspired to continue creating content that our players will want to play and experience. Obviously, that number was helped by our Spring Pack, which was available for a limited time. This download allowed anyone to play Sapienza, the beautiful Italian coastaltown and one of the most highly-praised locations from HITMAN.”

IO Interactive also revealed that it set a new all-time record for the most active users in a single day last week.

Let’s not forget that IO Interactive has acquired the rights of the HITMAN franchise from Square Enix, and that it has removed the Denuvo anti-tamper tech from it.

Rumour has it that the team will reveal its next Hitman game later this year, so stay tuned for more!
