IOI currently updates the game.
With this game update, we’re making it possible to sign up for a free IOI Account, which will allow you to stay updated on all the latest Hitman news. An IOI Account will allow you to register for newsletters from the studio, receive surveys and get notifications when we release new content. To create an account, go to Settings>IOI Account (or look for the icon on the ‘Featured’ Tab) and enter your email address.
I wonder what will come with the IOI account in the future. I know from other games that a box with recent news works well enough, not sure why an additional account is the way to go here.
Maybe it will be part of an Anti-Cheat system? Or is this the most easy way to fulfill the new european GDPR law?
