But having a return on investment within a week of launch is something that borders on amazing and that speaks for a great game, as Hitman 3 certainly is.
IO Interactive, the developer that now enters the line of successful, is celebrating, because its title has not only recovered the high cost invested for its creation, but it is also at the top of t he sales list in the United Kingdom .

“It has been a labor of love between our fans and everyone in the studio. As developers and publishers, we are immensely proud to say that ‘Hitman 3’ is already profitable. We have recovered the full project costs in less than a week. That puts us in a really good place and allows us to confidently move forward with our ambitious plans for future projects. “
He went on to say that: “We have been able to create a game that our players will love and bring it to them in the most direct way possible; developed and published by IOI
