IO Interactive has announced Hitman 3 has already recouped total project costs.

Released last week, Hitman 3’s developer has said the game has already turned a profit.

“We have been really happy with the Hitman 3 journey,” IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak told GI.biz.

“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.”

This the first full game in the Hitman franchise to be self-published by the studio.

The game was released on January 20 for PC (Epic Store), PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. It is a very well-received title with good scores all around. VG247’s Alex Donaldson even called it a “fitting finale to one of gaming’s best trilogies.”
