Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is the number one game in the UK, but it’s sales are low.
The latest UK numbers are out, and newest Assassin’s Creed entry has topped the charts. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate released on Friday, October 23, and has gone straight to number one in the UK. According to ChartTrack, while it did beat sales for Assassin’s Creed Rogue, the launch sales are the lowest of any of the other major entries in the series.
“Its launch fails to outperform previous title ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’, which was denied top spot last year by the second week of ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’,” the summary reads. “It is the second major entry in the Assassin’s Creed series not to be developed by Ubisoft Montreal, that honour this time going to Ubisoft Quebec. ‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ surpasses with ease the other non-Ubisoft Montreal developed title ‘Assassin’s Creed: Rogue’, but its launch falls short of surpassing any of the other major entries in the famous series.”
