Hitman 3 sold 300% better than Hitman 2

Hitman 3 has done gangbusters for IO Interactive, with CEO Hakan Abrak claiming this year's entry was 300% more commercially successful than previous entry Hitman 2.

We called Hitman 3 "IO's most creative and surprising assassination sim yet", and it seems like we weren't alone. In interview with GamesIndustry.biz (above), Abrak explained that Hitman 3 wasn't just the highest-rated critically of the series—it was also the most profitable, despite being the first game entirely self-published by the studio.

Hopefully that means Hitman 4 will sell 400% better!

I think they gonna take a break from Hitman and focus now on the James Bond game they're developing.

There won't be a Hitman 4. The trilogy is finished. The next Hitman game will be stand alone and have a subtitle

Continues the tradition of great opportunities. You can even manipulate a target to suicide. Genius!

With a little help from PSVR owners.

One thing good about hitman games is because it's a fan fave game the price really drops Il grab this when it's sub 15£

I’m happy they’re making profits. They took a big risk self-publishing, but clearly they were right: they know how to sell 6 levels for $60. And it sounds like their last publisher didn’t believe it was possible. Who could blame them? I think you need to be a genuine fan of the franchise in order to understand how it’s really the only way to go for Hitman. We fans would trade 100 linear Hitman levels for 1 gigantic level.
