Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Is The Second Biggest Profit-Generating Game For Ubisoft

Ubisoft recent­ly released earn­ings reports, and a big take­away from that report is the huge suc­cess Assas­s­in’s Creed Val­hal­la has become for company.

Val­hal­la has already become a mas­sive prof­it gen­er­a­tor for Ubisoft, through­out the entire com­pa­ny’s his­to­ry. This is quite an accom­plish­ment con­sid­er­ing it man­aged to achieve this in less than 12 months. How­ev­er, Ubisoft did not state what their num­ber one prof­it-gen­er­at­ing title is.

Ubisoft added that Val­hal­la had high­er dai­ly aver­age rev­enue per user (DARPU) fig­ures than Assas­s­in’s Creed Odyssey. Accord­ing to the pub­lish­er, the Siege of Paris expan­sion had “record engage­ment” as well. 

The com­pa­ny also brushed a bit on Far Cry 6, which did release out­side of this lat­est earn­ing report. While Ubisoft did not divulge detailed sales num­bers, they did say “ear­ly sales” were in line with Assas­s­in’s Creed Odyssey. Addi­tion­al­ly, user play­time has gone up 25% com­pared to Far Cry 5. 

With an excit­ing post-launch plan over the com­ing months, Far Cry 6 is set to be a strong per­former this hol­i­day,” Ubisoft said.

The report also includes a bit of infor­ma­tion about the antic­i­pat­ed pirate game, Skull & Bones. The game has been mak­ing head­lines late­ly due to the devel­op­ment issues, which Ubisoft­’s man­age­ment says high­lights the “chal­lenges behind the cre­ation of new IP.”

Work on the game con­tin­ues to progress well and the Sin­ga­pore team passed impor­tant new pro­duc­tion mile­stones. Pro­duc­ing ambi­tious new IPs is hard, requires for­ti­tude and long-term vision. This is how major indus­try fran­chis­es like Assas­s­in’s Creed and Tom Clan­cy’s The Divi­sion have been cre­at­ed,” Ubisoft said.

Addi­tion­al­ly, the report includes a peek into the com­pa­ny’s push into the free-to-play mar­ket. They want games like, Ghost Recon: Front­line and The Divi­sion: Heart­land, to reach a wider audi­ence. Mak­ing some titles free-to-play is the best way to bring play­ers into or back into franchises. 

Suc­cess may first imply fail­ures, to grow and learn as the group con­stant­ly builds new skills, tech­nolo­gies, and capa­bil­i­ties. While there is more work ahead, Ubisoft is con­fi­dent these organ­ic invest­ments will ulti­mate­ly pay off and sig­nif­i­cant­ly enhance the scale and val­ue of its biggest fran­chis­es,” Ubisoft said.
