Assassin's Creed slaughters records as well as bad guys
Ubisoft announced some remarkable results today.
Assassin's Creed is now officially the fastest-selling new video game IP in the US, ever. Ubisoft have already shifted over 2.5 million units worldwide on both the PS3 and the Xbox 360, and they have increased their original sales estimate for 2007/2008 from three to five million units of the game as a result.
The net result is that Ubisoft have raised their expectations across the business and are reporting they will clear an additional €15m in sales revenue.
It will be interesting to see how other Ubisoft titles do next year in comparison. With the likes of Haze and Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway on the way, there's a good deal of decent titles to come from Ubisoft in the New Year...
