What is happening inside a gaming industry can’y be imagined of because for example we thought that gamers were getting a little tired of the Assassin’s Creed series. Complaints about Ubisoft‘s yearly release schedule started surfacing around the time when Assassin’s Creed: Revelations came out and we all thought that this company is on the decline. But today, Ubisoft showed that nothing could be further from the truth, announcing that Assassin’s Creed III is its most pre-ordered game ever.Still then Ubisoft didn’t revealed the numbers as all publishers never do that but the company did say that pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed III have already doubled pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. That’s saying quite a bit, considering that Revelations was Ubisoft’s pre-order record holder before Assassin’s Creed III came along. Even without exact numbers, we can all probably imagine that pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed III are off the charts.
To make things even better, Ubisoft said in its announcement today that the Assassin’s Creed franchise as a whole has topped 40 million sales to date. With that many sales on the books, don’t expect Ubisoft to slow down on the Assassin’s Creed releases anytime soon. Then again, that won’t be much of a problem if Ubisoft keeps giving us new adventures and settings like it’s doing with Assassin’s Creed III.
