In the first two weeks, Assassin’s Creed Origins has sold 100% more copies than Syndicate according to Ubisoft.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated that this percentage was on a comparable basis of units and international estimates based on 10 days of sales for both titles.
“Given longer development lead times, our talents can fully express their creative visions and therefore maximize the potential of our games,” said Guillemot in Ubisoft’s Q2 FY18 financials.
35% of Assassin’s Creed Origin release copies were digital. Syndicate sold about 15%. Revenue from digital sales was up by 69.1% to €342.6 million. Extra content from DLC and microtransactions were up 82.9%, contributing €174.5 million to digital revenue.
