HITMAN 3 Already Profitable

IO Interactive announces HITMAN 3 is already profitable, just a week after its release. The publisher/developer tells GamesIndustry.biz that the new installment in the assassin-for-hire series has already recouped its development budget:
"We have been really happy with the Hitman 3 journey," says IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak.

"It has been a labor of love between our fans and everyone at the studio. As the developer and publisher, we are immensely proud that we can say Hitman 3 is already profitable. We have recouped the total 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."

I mean technically it was probably profitable before the first sale... because of the epic exclusive kickback.

True, but it is also a good game.

Got it for the kids, what a waste of money, they played it for a couple hours and told me it was terrible. So I guess it is a matter of whether your gaming tastes tend to games like this.

Those coupons happen multiple times per year. At least, they did in 2020.

I'm hoping for a Christmas sale price AND the coupon on top.

I'll wait until there's a "Complete Edition" with all the content from 1, 2 & 3 in a single bundle instead of having to check all the various DLC offers to find out what I need to actually get everything.

Good for them. I'll wait for a year or so to get it cheaper. Maybe during the next Epic Christmas sale. Those $10 off are VERY attractive each year.
