Assassin’s Creed III is Ubisoft’s fastest-selling game ever

Assassin’s Creed III has managed a total sell-through of seven million copies worldwide, becoming Ubisoft’s fastest-selling game of all time.

The figure was reached a mere month after the historical action-adventure’s release in late October 2012.

Ubisoft also confirmed some interesting statistics for you to digest. In terms of solo play, gamers have drummed up more than 82 centuries of gaming time and performed over three billion assassinations.

For multiplayer, players have logged over five billion sessions and committed more than 250 million assassinations.

Ubisoft’s UK managing director, Rob Cooper, commented: “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.”
