Event Hype 20 Years of Hitman


NeoGAFs Kent Brockman
Dec 1, 2014

This November marks the 20th anniversary of the Hitman franchise – and we’re in the mood to celebrate!

Agent 47 was first introduced to the world in November 2000 with the release of Hitman: Codename 47. Since then, the franchise has spanned a total of seven major games with Agent 47 travelling to 6 continents and performing more than 100 missions. Across those 7 games, we are proud and excited to announce that the Hitman franchise now has more than 70 million lifetime players.

Not only that, the franchise has developed into a multimedia brand with two movie adaptions, two novels, a comic series and two mobile games.

We are immensely proud to reach the significant milestone of 70 million lifetime players and we are honoured to have such a strong community of players, fans and partners that have helped us to continue making games, building on Agent 47’s legacy and providing hours and hours of enjoyment in the last 20 years. Thank you for your inspiration, passion, dedication and support that has fuelled our drive to continually improve and create.

To commemorate the 20th year of Hitman and Agent 47 this November, we’ve lined up some moments of celebration that will enable us to reflect on what we have achieved over the years and to look ahead at what’s to come in HITMAN 3.
