Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has truly been a boon for Ubisoft.
Yesterday, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the newest entry in the long running action adventure (now RPG) franchise, has become the fastest selling game in the franchise for this generation. It looks like the stock market is pretty pleased with the results as well, because Ubisoft’s shares saw some pretty hefty gains in the wake of the news— amidst a larger market slowdown which saw tech firms especially hit over the last couple of days, and bled from the American market over to the European and Asian ones as well.
Ubisoft’s shares rose by 4 per cent on the back of this news, and market analysis firm Midcap Partners issued a statement noting its optimism for Ubisoft stock in the coming days. Its current stock market price is in fact over four times as much as it was at this time two years ago.
As I noted yesterday, too, given the game’s overwhelmingly positive reception, and strong word of mouth, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey should end up having a very long tail, and may end up becoming the bestselling game in the franchise. It is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
