Assassin's Creed Remains Ubisoft's Best-Selling Franchise with Over 140 Million Copies Sold
Assassin's Creed remains the most successful property that Ubisoft has ever created.
For quite awhile now, the Assassin’s Creed series has been Ubisoft’s most successful when it comes to the number of copies sold. As of the company’s most recent update, that’s not something that has changed, either, with the total copies sold growing even larger.
In a tweet shared by industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, Ubisoft recently updated their sales figures for all of their major franchises. Assassin’s Creed still sits stop the rest and has sold a staggering 140 million copies across all entries that have made up the series. As of this year, the Assassin’s Creed series is 12 years old meaning that on average, over 11.5 million copies of any title in the series have been sold each year. That’s pretty crazy. Ubisoft went on to say that of that total, 95+ million are unique players.
The next closest franchise to Assassin’s Creed is that of Just Dance. However, even though it’s in second Just Dance still only has approximately half the lifetime sales that AC does having sold 70 million copies total. According to Ubisoft’s stats, over 2.5 billion songs have been played in Just Dance games to date.
I just realised Ubisoft updated its franchise sales figures a while back and no one reported on it.
Assassin’s Creed: 140m sold
Just Dance: 70m sold
Far Cry: 50m sold
Rabbids: 20m sold
R6S: 50m players
Ghost Recon: 30m players
For Honor: 21m players
The Crew: 21m players pic.twitter.com/Hv6vRJ9Poc

Unsurprisingly, Far Cry is the publisher’s next top-selling franchise having now sold 50 million copies since the release of Far Cry 2. As for other notable IP from Ubisoft, Splinter Cell sits over 30 million copies sold lifetime while the Rabbids games have surpassed 20 million.
Looking at all of these totals in this manner, it’s easy to see how Ubisoft has become one of the biggest third-party publishers in the video game industry today. And as for Assassin’s Creed, well, that franchise sales total will surely continue to climb even higher next year when a new mainline entry in the series is set to arrive.
