Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has gotten off to a booming start, achieving the highest week-one sales for an Assassin’s Creed game since the arrival of the current-gen consoles. By that metric, we can hazard an educated guess that AC Odyssey is the fastest-selling Assassin’s Creed since 2012’s Assassin’s Creed 3.
The glowing reviews have no doubt helped on this front, with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey even beating out last year’s AC Origins in terms of both reviews and sales figures. Maybe Ubisoft really will go back to annual releases after all...
“We are incredibly proud of what the team accomplished with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and humbled by the amazing reception from critics and players. Based on the quality of the game and the very encouraging reactions from players, we expect Odyssey to be one of the top performing Assassin’s Creed games of all-time,” said Geoffroy Sardin, senior vice president of sales and marketing.
“Launch is just the start of this epic journey. We have robust content plans for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that will keep players engaged and exploring the game’s beautiful and compelling world for a long time to come.”
