Ubisoft are having a great week. Today, it was announced that Assassin’s Creed 3 has sold over 3.5 Million copies in one week alone, which is certainly a huge feat for the the series and brand as a whole.

That’s a good thing in my eyes though, as it’s good to see something other than a shooter grow into an utter phenomenon.
Here is the official statement from CEO Yves Guillemot :
First-week sell-through sales for Assassin’s Creed 3 are estimated at over 3.5 million units, representing a year-on-year increase of more than 100 percent
