The success of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has brought the franchise back to its glory days

The Assassin’s Creed franchise saw a dip in popularity right after Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s poor reception. Ever since, the franchise has been trying to compensate by working on elaborate new ideas. The studio even revamped the entire gameplay and the franchise with Origins, which produced great results. Following it up with two groundbreaking releases in Odyssey and now Valhalla.

The studio also claimed Valhalla has been outperforming its predecessors ever since its release last year. This only means that the franchise is back to its glory days, and there’s a great piece of news for the fanbase.

“We plan to deliver great new content for year 2 of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, notably in the second half of the current fiscal year. With an enhanced gameplay experience, we released last week Discovery Tour: Viking Age, which the BBC praised as ‘an interactive and historically accurate way to explore history’. In less than 12 months, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is already the second-largest profit-generating game in Ubisoft’s history, reflecting the remarkable strength and value of the franchise.”

The reports also shed light on Far Cry 6’s performance, which, thus far, looks quite promising. Although Far Cry 5 is still the most popular title of the franchise, the game could soon be bested by the latest installment. Only time will tell, whether Far Cry 6 will take the pole position or not.
