Ubisoft Sells 3.5 Copies of Assassin’s Creed 3- a New Franchise Record
Leave it to Assassin’s Creed 3 to become the highest selling game in Ubisoft franchise history.
With more than 3.5 million copies sold, it can be hard to grasp just how impressive this feat really is. The company managed to accumulate this many sales since their launch date on October 30th. And not only was Assassin’s Creed 3 the most successful game in regards to launch sales, it doubled that of the game before: Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
Looking at the Numbers
The massive sales for Assassin’s Creed 3 were a huge accomplishment for Ubisoft, a company who had already proven their success with many previous games. Also keep in mind that the Assassin’s Creed Anthology bundle has also been revealed and it will package all five games into a single box for players to enjoy- although many speculate that American players are not going to be happy about this update (as you’ll soon read why).
Assassin’s Creed Bundle Release
According to Joystiq, the new bundle is supposed to be released for X-Box 360 and PlayStation 3 in Europe. However, the reasons why U.S. players aren’t happy about this news are because there has been no news about plans to launch in North American. The bundle is supposed to be released to Africa, the Middle East, and Europe and will do so around November 30th.
However, when interviewed, Ubisoft did leave the door open for potential sales in North America so there is still hope for U.S. players. But “for now”, it should only be expected for players in Europe and in the Middle East. American players can keep their fingers crossed for now because there is still a chance that the bundle will makes its way into the U.S.
