ASSASSIN’S CREED VALHALLA DELIVERS BIGGEST LAUNCH WEEK IN FRANCHISE HISTORY

The latest adventure in the time-hopping series outpaced its predecessors as it launched across next-gen and current generation consoles.

On Tuesday, Ubisoft revealed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the latest installment in the long-running historical adventure franchise, sold more units in the first week of launch than any other title in the series. The game also delivered the top-selling PC launch in Ubisoft’s history.

Valhalla launched on Nov. 10 across Xbox consoles — including the next-gen Xbox Series X and S — and PC. The title subsequently debuted on Nov. 12 for PlayStation users, including on the next-gen PlayStation 5. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is also the top-selling Ubisoft PC launch ever.

While Ubisoft declined to provide specific sales data around Valhalla’s launch, the series’ most recent installment, 2018’s Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, sold 1.4 million copies in its first week, while 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins topped 1.5 million copies sold in its first week.

Ubisoft also has “robust content plans” for Valhalla beyond launch, producer Julien Laferrière said. “Launch is only the beginning,” said Laferrière.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is available now across Xbox and PlayStation consoles, Stadia, Amazon Luna, PC and on Ubisoft +, Ubisoft’s subscription service.
