Assassin's Creed Valhalla's launch has made the biggest splash sales-wise of any Assassin's Creed game in the series' 13 year history.

Ubisoft confirmed today that the latest game, which launched for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Stadia, and Luna on November 10, has sold through more copies in its first seven days than any previous Assassin's Creed title at launch.

Building on that, Ubisoft also says that Assassin's Creed Valhalla now holds the title of its biggest-ever PC launch across all of Ubisoft's games on the platform. Notably, that PC launch saw Valhalla go up for sale on both Ubisoft's own Ubisoft Store as well as the Epic Games Store.

"We are truly delighted by the enthusiastic response from players and want to thank the fans for their incredible support," reads a statement from Julien Laferrière, a producer on Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

"Delivering this game amid a global pandemic was a true tour de force by our teams and it’s fantastic to see players enjoying the game so much. Launch is only the beginning and we have robust content plans for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla that will keep players immersed in their epic Viking saga for a long time to come.”
