Publishing giant Ubisoft has seen 11 of its games shift 10 million copies across this generation.
As revealed on Twitter (below) – via Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad – the games are spread across six franchises on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Unsurprisingly both Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Origins are on that list. Of which the former experienced a 33 per cent increase in concurrent players over the latter. However, it is a bit of a shock to see Assassin's Creed: Unity join them. Far Cry 4 and Far Cry 5 also broke 10 million sales, as did The Division 1 and 2.
Ubisoft has seen further success with two other Tom Clancy franchises as Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Rainbow Six Siege join the list. Finally, both Watch Dogs games have also moved 10 million units. A bit of a surprise given the lacklustre sales Watch Dogs 2 experienced at launch.
Given the success of the latest Assassin's Creed games, it would be a safe bet to assume the recently announced AC: Valhalla will achieve similar performance. The Vikings inspired title was revealed in a live stream with artist Bosslogic, the first video for the game dropped on April 30th.
Besides Valhalla, Ubisoft has announced three more games for next-generation hardware – Gods and Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Watch Dogs Legion.
