Ubisoft Confirms Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Sales Figures
Ubisoft have confirmed that the latest instalment in it’s Assassin’s Creed franchise, Black Flag, has sold 10 million units to date.
They haven’t confirmed how the sales break down per console, however.
Interestingly, the game has sold 2 million copies less than the previous iteration, Assassin’s Creed III managed in the same time frame despite being a superior game, in my humble opinion.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said: “Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag performed particularly well, reinforcing the franchise’s long-term potential and therefore its upcoming iteration. We expect to reach around 11 million by the end of March, a remarkable performance close to the high end of our plan”.
Although we do know that a new iteration of the Assassin’s Creed franchise is on the way, and the franchise is set to receive annual updates, exact details have yet to be confirmed.
