Assassin's Creed Odyssey sales out-perform rest of series on current console generation

Physical, digital, and "player recurring investment" in first few days top Origins, Syndicate, or Unity

Ubisoft has announced that in the first three days of the game's release, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is seeing "the franchise's best launch-week performance of this console generation."

This includes both physical and digital sales revenue of the game, as well as "player recurring investment in value," per the press release, which is likely in-game transactions. The data is taken from the game's release through October 7, and sales are being compared to Assassin's Creed Unity, Syndicate, Origins, and the three Chronicles games - China, India, and Russia.

The release does not provide specifics on particular units or revenue milestones, though it's worth noting that Odyssey's predecessor, Assassin's Creed Origins, sold twice as many units as its own predecessor, Syndicate, in the first ten days of its release. Odyssey is currently on its fifth day since launch, though Ubisoft's announcement covers a shorter period of comparison for all titles involved.

"We are incredibly proud of what the team accomplished with Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and humbled by the amazing reception from critics and players," said Ubisoft senior VP of sales and marketing, Geoffroy Sardin. "Based on the quality of the game and the very encouraging reactions from players, we expect Odyssey to be one of the top performing Assassin's Creed games of all-time.

"Launch is just the start of this epic journey. We have robust content plans for Assassin's Creed Odyssey that will keep players engaged and exploring the game's beautiful and compelling world for a long time to come."
