Ubisoft has 11 current generation titles that have sold 10 million copies

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.
