HITMAN has surpassed 7 million players

In an interview with GamesIndustry, IO Interactive’s CEO Hakan Abrak revealed that HITMAN has passed 7 million players. Not only that, but according to Hakan this number rises on a daily basis.

As Hakan said when asked about it:

“That number is rising daily. And these aren’t dormant players; these are highly engaged players in Hitman.”

For comparison purposes, HITMAN hit 5 million players back in August 2017. In other words, it took IO Interactive around 3 months in order to increase its playerbase by more than 2 million players.

It’s also worth noting 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.

Last but not least, IO Interactive is already working on the next HITMAN game. As Hakan revealed a few days ago, the team is making great progress and has some exciting new features and franchise firsts. The team will reveal the next HITMAN game in 2018!
