Assassin’s Creed 4 Ships 10 Million Units, PS4 Versions Outselling Xbox One – Ubisoft
Ubisoft also reveals units shipped for Just Dance 2014 and Rocksmith 2014.
In its regular financial report for the past 3 months, Ubisoft has revealed that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag managed to ship 10 million units, marking it as a stupendous success. Though it doesn’t indicate number of units sold, it showcases that demand is very strong for the title.
Interestingly, it shipped 2 million units less than Assassin’s Creed 3 within the same period. Considering that Black Flag released for a new console generation as well as working to overcome the poor reputation brought on by its predecessor, it’s still an impressive feat. Meanwhile, Just Dance 2014 shipped 6 million units, and while 2 million less than its predecessor, it’s still a “leading casual brand on consoles.”
Rocksmith 2014 only managed to ship 1 million units however, with Ubisoft reporting “lower-than-expected” sales. As far as PS4 to Xbox One sales, Ubisoft games on the former managed to outsell the latter at 12 and 9 percent of total sales respectively. The PS3 followed suit with 28 percent of sales versus the Xbox One’s 27 percent.
