Hitman: Absolution Turns One, Played by Six Million


Hitman: Absolution has been out for a year, and to celebrate, IO Interactive released a few facts and figures about how successful the game was. The answer is more impressive than you might think.

We checked our metrics yesterday morning and over 6 million people have played Hitman Absolution. We counted 6,112,047 in total, which is a strangely fitting number given the occasion. This is a really humbling number for us and we’re obviously really proud of that achievement. We can also see that our Contracts mode has been a grand success with over 9.5 million contracts played and a staggering $2.2 trillion in virtual cash earned through contracts play. We’re obviously thrilled to see the Hitman fans engage with this online mode, which is one of the most exciting innovations to come to the Hitman series and it’s sure to be a major part of our future plans for the franchise.

As an anniversary celebration, the Full Disclosure iPad app will be free for a limited time. The Full Disclosure app features a variety of videos and pictures designed to give you a look behind the scenes, and at some of the abandoned concepts that never made it to release.

Hitman: Absolution was released on the 20th November 2012. You can read our review here.
