We know that Ubisoft has plans on releasing a new Assassin’s Creed game every year and they’re not shy about it, despite some worrying that the annual releases could somehow dilute the franchise. On one hand that is true, but on the other we’re sure that gamers out there who are fans would love to see new content added every now and then, right?
Well perhaps Ubisoft’s strategy might be paying off for them because according to the recent figures, it seems that Assassin’s Creed could be Ubisoft’s best selling franchise to date. The numbers were recently released on Ubisoft’s website and revealed that the company had managed to sell about 73 million copies of the game to date, making it their best selling franchise in the world.
Ubisoft launched Assassin’s Creed back in 2007 where it debuted on the Sony PS3, the Xbox 360, and the PC. They went on to release multiple versions of the game where there were separate Assassin’s Creed titles made for mobile as well. In 2014 there are talks that not only could Ubisoft be releasing a new Assassin’s Cree game (Unity, which has since been confirmed), but two Assassin’s Creed game.
While Assassin’s Creed: Unity is designed for the latest consoles, the latter, codenamed Comet, is said to be designed for previous-gen consoles in mind. Unity is expected to see a release later this year and we can’t wait to see how the game will affect Ubisoft’s numbers.
