Ubisoft® has announced that Assassin’s Creed® 3 is the fastest-selling game in the company’s history, with total sell-through topping the 7 million mark worldwide just one month after its release. Fans have wasted no time exploring the game’s open world, and getting involved in the action-packed story. In solo missions alone, players have accumulated more than 82 centuries of gaming time and committed more than 3 billion assassinations. The deadly action continues in the multiplayer, where more than twice as many players have joined the multiplayer mode compared to Assassin’s Creed® Revelations. To date, more than 250 million assassinations have been performed in more than 5 billion multiplayer sessions.
“The reception for Assassin’s Creed III has been exceptional, and this success has positioned the game among the best sellers of the 2012 holiday season” said Lucile Bousquet, Marketing and Communication Director, Ubisoft Canada. “We knew we had something special on our hands when Assassin’s Creed III was launched, and we’re really excited and proud to see how much fans are enjoying the latest installment in the franchise.”
