Ubisoft confirmed that 11 games this console generation have sold over 10 million copies: Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, The Division, The Division 2, Far Cry 4, Far Cry 5, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, Rainbow Six Siege, Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2. The performance of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is especially notable, with sell-through and player engagement up 90% compared to Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Looking forward, Ubisoft’s lineup for the next financial year, ending March 31, 2021, includes five major titles: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, Gods & Monsters and one unnannounced AAA game. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla attracted particularly strong attention, gathering over 100 million views of the official trailer (across multiple channels) in 10 days. Meanwhile, Rainbow Six Siege crossed 60 million players.
Ubisoft is planning a digital showcase called Ubisoft Forward on July 12, which will no doubt shed more light on what games fans will be playing in the coming months, as well as providing extended looks and release dates for already-announced games.
