It Takes Two Sells a Huge 5 Million Copies


It Takes Two has sold five million copies, including two million since October, developer Hazelight Studios has announced.

The developer tweeted (below) that “our team is absolutely stunned just thinking about how many players have now enjoyed our game.”

Hazelight previously announced on October 13 that the award-winning co-op game had passed three million units sold, showing that It Takes Two had a strong holiday period performance with at least two million sales.

It Takes Two won several categories at The Game Awards 2021 including overall game of the year, best multiplayer game, and best family game. It was among the nominees for IGN’s game of the year but in the end fell to Forza Horizon 5.

We called the game “amazing”, saying “It Takes Two is a spectacular co-op adventure that lays down a path of great gameplay ideas and uses it to play a giddy game of hopscotch.”

Several famous faces from the gaming industry have also praised the game. Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki said it was a standout of 2021 alongside executives at Naughty Dog who also said it was their game of the year.

It Takes Two’s success has led it beyond the gaming sphere, as Hazelight Studios has partnered with dj2 Entertainment to create adaptations for film and television.
