Assassin's Creed Franchise Reaches 100 Million Copies Sold
That's up from 73 million in 2014.
"Creating an Assassin's Creed game is no easy task," senior producer Martin Schelling said in a statement. "It takes the creativity and hard work of many people in many different Ubisoft studios all over the world. To have this franchise join the ranks of those that have reached more than 100 million sold is a testament to the teams that have taken on that challenge over the years."
Assassin's Creed brand director Etienne Allonier added that crossing 100 million units sold is a "huge milestone" for the series. Even better games are coming, Allonier said.
"Having seen what's gone into this year's movie and into future Assassin's Creed games, we think fans and newcomers alike will be excited by everything Assassin's Creed has to offer," Allonier teased.
Assassin's Creed joins franchises like Grand Theft Auto, Mario, Final Fantasy, FIFA, Need for Speed, Pokemon, and Lego, among others.
In April 2014, Assassin's Creed series sales stood at 73 million. Ubisoft did not provide any specifics regarding sales by title.
There won't be a new mainline Assassin's Creed game this year, but Ubisoft will release The Ezio Collection in November for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This comes with Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, and Assassin's Creed Revelations, featuring "enhanced graphics" and more.
