Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed 3 is the fastest-selling game in the company’s history, with total sell-through topping the 7 million mark worldwide just one month after its release. Fans have wasted no time exploring the game’s open world, and getting involved in the action-packed story.
In solo missions alone, players have accumulated more than 82 centuries of gaming time and committed more than 3 billion assassinations. The deadly action continues in the multiplayer, where more than twice as many players have joined the multiplayer mode compared to Assassin’s Creed Revelations. To date, more than 250 million assassinations have been performed in more than 5 billion multiplayer sessions.
“We are delighted with the performance of Assassin’s Creed III this Christmas. This is a beautiful and epic game of exceptional quality and we’re pleased that our fans have responded so well to the brand new universe, storyline and game experience.”
