Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Sells 10 Million In Q3 2013


Ubisoft’s Third Quarter sales report states that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag sold 10 million copies across all platforms. These sales help to attribute to the quality of the franchise as well as the longevity of the series. The series has seen quite a few entries (6 main story games, with an added 5 spinoff games for a total of 11 games within the Assassin’s Creed universe) and the great sales for Black Flag shows that the animus has a lot more memories to reenact for us to play for years to come.

Amongst other games, these sales attributed to Ubisoft’s €520 million ($708 million USD), which was a drop from Q3 of 2012-2013 by 35.2% but that’s still an impressive sales figure regardless of the yearly difference. Yves Guillemot stated the following regarding the sales:

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag performed particularly well, reinforcing the
franchise’s long-term potential and therefore its upcoming iteration. This robust showing was
achieved thanks to the excellence of our teams, our extensive development capacities and the
efficiency of our Lead and Associate studio structure.
