Assassins Creed Origins First Week Sales Surpass Super Mario Odyssey & Wolfenstein 2
In the last week of October, we saw the debut of some highly anticipated games. Among them, Assassin’s Creed Origins had such a successful launch to sell more than Super Mario Odyssey and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus during the first week.
The news has arrived on the Twitter page of The Codex, a reference community for all fans of the Assassin’s Creed saga.
At the moment we do not know the exact figures, but considering that Super Mario Odyssey has been able to sell over two million copies during the first weekend, this means that Assassin’s Creed Origins will be able to do even better (including Watch Dogs 2 and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate).
According to Chart-Track, it is also worth taking a look at the UK sales rankings, one of the most important video game markets. The first position is occupied by Assassin’s Creed Origins, which marks retail sales similar to those of the previous chapter, Syndicate.
Surely not an exciting result considering that Syndicate is the chapter that has sold less in the series than Rogue but the growth of the digital market and the word of mouth after the average positive reviews should still outline a positive situation for Ubisoft and the series.
Super Mario Odyssey is in the second place and not too far from Assassin’s Creed. The result is remarkable also because it is the best launch of a Switch title (better than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild).
The news is much worse for the third major release of October 27: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus takes fourth place with sales declining by about 60% compared to Wolfenstein: The New Order.
