It’s also Ubisoft’s fastest-selling game to date, and with good reason, as fans have hailed the title as one of, if not the best Assassin’s Creed game the publisher’s ever forged. More numbers and praises from company bosses below the break.
According to Ubisoft, in solo missions alone, players have accumulated more than 82 centuries of gaming time and committed more than 3 billion assassinations. On the multiplayer front, more than twice as many players have joined the action compared to Assassin’s Creed Revelations. And to date, more than 250 million assassinations have been performed in more than 5 billion multiplayer sessions. Impressive.
Said Tony Key, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing:
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. 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.
