It Takes Two was released by Hazelight last March, published as an EA Originals title. Its manager, Josef Fares, is perhaps best known for his dislike of The Oscars and you may have seen it on Game rewards stage last December. That’s because he accepted the Game of the Year award that night.
Fares is probably still on top of that win, but today some news release is sure to put a smile on his face. The official Hazelight Studios Twitter account revealed that It Takes Two has sold five million copies.
“5…that’s FIVE million copies of It Takes Two sold,” the tweet read. “Our team is absolutely amazed just to think of how many players have now enjoyed our game.”
