Valhalla is the biggest Assassin’s Creed launch ever

Technology

Thor it’d done well.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla shifted more copies in its launch week than any other game in the long-running series to date.

It has also been Ubisoft’s best PC launch ever, with an “all-time record” for sales directly from Ubisoft’s own digital store.

Valhalla is the 12th mainline Assassin’s Creed game, and the third since it shifted genres and adopted a biannual release schedule.

It’s worth noting Ubisoft has not announced any actual sales figures here, though we can safely assume Valhalla has beaten the franchise’s previously-stated launch week total set by Assassin’s Creed 3 of 3.5m units worldwide.
