Hitman: Sniper Challenge started life as a pre-order incentive, but its runaway success has caused developer IO Interactive to think bigger.

Speaking with MCV, IO’s game director Tore Blystad discussed the game’s success, “People are playing it a lot. I think the No.1 player in the world has clocked in hundreds of hours so far which is completely crazy, right? We’re very happy because that’s the essence of Hitman; it is made to be replayed.”

On the subject of turning Hitman: Sniper Challenge into a full gae, Blystad responded, “Who knows? It turned out really well. If we can find a way to make it work then I guess we will.”
