Hitman's first Elusive Target was killed six minutes after going live & other interesting stats

Hitman's first elusive target went live last week. The target was Sergei Larin, aka The Forger, hidden somewhere in the game's Paris level.

Elusive Targets appear only for a set amount of time for all players, before disappearing forever. Developer IO revealed that the first kill was achieved only six minutes after the target became available.

The first Silent Assassin kill - meaning the player wasn't spotted and didn't leave any bodies in the open, was achieved in just 34 minutes since the hit went live.

The target was also popular with players, but 47 percent of players missed their shot to kill him. For those who did, almost 10 percent of whom done so silently.

IO also said it will reveal the release date of Marrakesh, the game's third episode, next week. Marrakesh will also be playable at E3 in June.
