Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has become the most powerful game in the entire franchise, at least from a financial perspective, as reported by Ubisoft. As VGC reports, last February the company’s chief financial officer labeled the latest major installment as “the largest launch in the history of the franchise. ” As a result, it has also set a new revenue record.
Today, and thanks to the success of Valhalla, the assassin saga goes through its best moment and registers its best historical financial third quarter in February 2021. Comparatively, the last fiscal year has left 50% more income than the last record (2012-2013) that ended in March 2013, thanks to the also very successful Assassin’s Creed 3.
“In terms of units sold at the end of December, Assassin’s Creed 3 is still the biggest release “, clarified Frederick Duguet, CFO of Ubisoft, a few months ago. “But on the value side, clearly Valhalla has been the biggest launch in the franchise” emphasizing the post-launch support plans.
As a reminder, a few days ago we collected that data miners have found clues that AC Valhalla will take us to the world of Muspelheim at some point, which shows Ubisoft’s intention to keep the flow of content intact for even longer. Free news, on the other hand, has not always met expectations, so the strategy is likely to change (or improve) in the future.
