It Takes Two has sold one million copies

Co-op title It Takes Two has sold more than one million copies.

That's according to developer Hazelight, who revealed the milestone on Twitter and said that the game was "still going strong." Meanwhile, director Josef Fares said that this shows the desire from players for co-operative experiences.

"This shows that there definitely is players that also wants to play co op only games," he wrote.

"Thank you everyone and I hope we see more game like this."

It Takes Two debuted at the end of March and in its third week on sale was the best-selling title on Steam. The ever-bold Fares said earlier in 2021 that if someone became bored of the game, he'd give them $1,000.

It Takes Two appears to have been a slightly slower seller than Hazelight's previous release, A Way Out. That title shifted one million copies in two weeks when it was released in March 2018, before shifting two million by August 2019. In January 2021, A Way Out had sold over 3.5 million units.

We previously caught up with Fares at the BAFTA Game Awards 2019 after A Way Out won the multiplayer category.
