In what is being described as “exceptional player activity” Ubisoft has revealed that the launch of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is twice as successful as 2018’s Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.
The reports revealing the levels of success from Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla come down to the game having twice as many active player numbers on launch day when compared to that of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.
A press release provided by Ubisoft reads: “The number of active players on launch day for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla doubled that of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.”
In the press release Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot said the following: “We are humbled by the reception from the players and extremely proud of what our teams have accomplished with Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla.”
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Guillemot expressed his delight of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla launching on no less than seven different platforms.
“In the context of COVID-19, shipping Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla on no less than seven platforms is an incredible achievement for all of the teams involved around the world,” he said.
