Assassin’s Creed 3 Sells Over 3 Million Copies In First Week

People Sure Do Love George Washington

Ubisoft has just reported their first half numbers for the 2012-13 fiscal year and have announced that Assassin’s Creed 3 is estimated to have sold more than 3.5 million copies in its first week in release.

I think we were all expecting Assassin’s Creed 3 to pop a big number but that is a huge amount of games. It is over double the sales from last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. It seems the swap from Italy to the American Revolution is just what this series needed.

Ubisoft still has a strong lineup for the rest of the year as well with Far Cry 3, Just Dance 4 and seven titles releasing on Nintendo’s Wii U. It is basically the exact opposite of the THQ article I posted this morning.
