Life smiles at IO Interactive. Granted in an interview Games industry, Hakan Abrak, The CEO of the Danish studio announced that Hitman 3’s development blows were paid for in less than seven days through sales.
It was loving work that everyone in the studio did for our fans. As a developer and publisher, we are very proud that Hitman 3 is already profitable.. We got the total cost of the project back in less than a week. This puts us in a comfortable position and allows us to safely advance our ambitious plans for future projects.
The first self-described title, the final installment in the Assassination World Trilogy that debuted at Square Enix in 2016, succeeded the game’s vision, according to the clear abrak, thanks to the direct connection with the players and the fact that everyone in the company could help .
What is certain is that the news is a joy when we remember a time not that long ago. IO Interactive was separated from Square Enix in 2017 and had to give up part of its workforce. Hitman 2 development was done with pain. Today we have what looks like it’s a hit and a James Bond-centric project up our sleeves. We’ve never had a worse start to a year.
