Ubisoft has announced that stealthy-sequel Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has moved a meaty one million copies throughout European territories in under a week.
The milestone brings global sales of the brand to over 20 million units, with the series on track to top the 30 million mark by the end of 2011.
“If you compare [the 1m in a week] with last year’s ACII sales this is a big jump – so it’s a great achievement,” commented EMEA chief of marketing at Ubisoft, Geoffroy Sardin, during a chat with MCV.
“It’s the best launch in the history of Ubisoft’s European sales, and our best-selling launch title ever.”
Sardin also dropped a rather juicy tidbit regarding the publisher’s plans for 2011, backing up previous comments from Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot that indicated a new Assassin’s Creed is on the horizon.
“Yes, Yves mentioned it last week in our financials – and more details will be forthcoming. But what I can say is that next year we will have another big Assassin’s Creed game,” he said.
