Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the first game in the series to gross Ubisoft over $1 billion. Net bookings are said to be 70 percent higher than predecessor Odyssey. Also, the latest AC game is played more often than its predecessor.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told investors that Valhalla has delivered the said amount of consumer revenue, according to Axios. Since Assassin’s Creed Origins from 2017, the developer is said to have made the games bigger and bigger, so that players play the game longer and more often buy dlc, for example. It would now take more than 130 hours of playing time to complete the game.
In its quarterly results, the developer notes that Valhalla had a “remarkably good” quarter, with engagement 30 percent higher than its predecessor Odyssey, measured at the same point after launch. Valhalla’s growth compared to Odyssey would be 70 percent in net bookings and player recurring investments, or how much players invest in DLC, would be 80 percent higher, also compared to how Odyssey performed after release.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be released in November 2020 for consoles and PC and will focus on the Viking invasion of Britain. The Dawn of Ragnarök expansion will be released in March, according to Ubisoft the largest DLC the company has ever made. Rumor has it that a new Assassin’s Creed game will be released at the end of this year, or next year that will be smaller than Valhalla and initially intended as DLC for the game.
