Here's a pleasant bit of news to see the weekend in with: It Takes Two has already sold more than one million copies after less than a month on the market. Confirmed with a tweet from developer Hazelight Studios, the co-op only game has proven popular with both veteran gamers and newcomers. The studio said: "Just found out It Takes Two has sold over 1 million copies and is still going strong! Thank you so much for all the love you’ve shown our game, it means the world to us."
Famous creator Josef Fares then elaborated: "This shows that there definitely is players that also wants to play co op only games! Thank you everyone and I hope we see more game like this." As part of an interview we recently conducted with the man himself, he said: "To be honest, I'm not that surprised [about the good reception], because I always have a strong belief in what we do. If you ask me about our next game, I can tell you now, it will be even better than It Takes Two. It's gonna be so crazy. That's how sure I am, like the concept, what's gonna happen, and people will be blown away." It certainly sounds like he's getting the chance to make another one of those games he refers to.
We were one of the outlets contributing to that good reception, awarding an 8/10 in the It Takes Two PS5 review. "While it stumbles on certain narrative aspects and not all the performances are winners, it more than makes up for that with its brilliantly fun and ever-changing gameplay. Forcing two players to work in tandem in countless ways, the game embraces co-op play wholeheartedly, and the variety of gameplay and environments makes it a joy to play from start to finish."
