Assassin's Creed Odyssey launch sales set franchise record
Odyssey is the fastest selling entry for the franchise on this console generation
Ubisoft has announced strong early sales for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, as it set the record for the franchise’s best launch-week performance of this console generation.
No exact sales figures were provided. Other games in the franchise for this console generation are Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Assassin's Creed: Unity, Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, and last year's Assassin's Creed: Origins.
“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.
Ubisoft promises that the post-launch DLC roadmap plan is the biggest and most ambitious in the franchise, deepening storytelling through its episodic structure. Season Pass owners will access two major storylines, Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis, with three episodes each and all players will receive the free story missions, The Lost Tales of Greece, along with recurring in-game events and access to Discovery Tour.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
