Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Launch Sales Are Highest Among Current-Gen Releases

In case you’re wondering just how well Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has been doing since it launched last week, Ubisoft has some great news. Apparently, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launch sales are the highest they’ve been on this generation of console, meaning Odyssey is on top of four different Assassin’s Creed games.

There have been four different Assassin’s Creed games since the Xbox One and Playstation 4 were released, not counting in Odyssey, which would be the fifth. These games include Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and Assassin’s Creed Origins. Like all other Assassin’s Creed games, each one gave you a large open world full of content to explore, and the maps have only gotten bigger recently.

Assassin’s Creed experienced a brief decline in popularity when Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate came out, both of which were plagued by huge amounts of bugs as part of the series’s rough patch when Ubisoft decided to start releasing the games every year. However, after Syndicate they stopped and instead moved for multiple years between releases, which considering the huge popularity of Origins and Odyssey has helped them immensely.

Perhaps even better is the fact of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launch sales being so high, even over Origins, which threw a huge kink in the Assassin’s Creed formula and threw a lot of mechanics out the window, changing up the combat, the mission style, the weapon system, and more. Odyssey seems to have refined a lot of these techniques in addition to finding their own, helped along by the fact that sailing has returned from Black Flag.

Considering how Ubisoft’s new system of developing Assassin’s Creed games is working out so far, hopefully we’ll be able to see the games get more and more successful much like the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launch sales each time a new game is released in the future. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is currently available on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
