Assassin’s Creed as a franchise has sold over 6.6 million units in the UK, Ubisoft’s UK brand manager Omebline Wallon has told MCV.

“The Assassin’s Creed franchise has already sold over 6.6 million units in the UK and over the past few years it has become a staple in gamers’ diaries,” he said. “Since we announced Black Flag in March, we have supported it at every beat of the campaign. We will be increasing our media presence as we near launch.”

Wallon said alongside TV spots and campaigns in print and online, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag will also be touring the country, and making stops at 20 universities along the way.

“This year the anticipation is high, especially with the game coming on PS4 and Xbox One,” he added. “Consumers are very excited about what the new consoles have to offer.”

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is out worldwide on PS3 and Xbox 360 October 29 and will arrive on PC, PS4, Wii U and Xbox One from November 22.

    I like the AC games, but the last few have been rather poor, BrotherHood was the high point, then the quality went down hill. Revelations has to be the worst after AC1, with the game feeling rushed and gameplay elements where lacking. AC3 I was really disappointed in, again seemed rushed, with bugs and gameplay elements that where not elaborated on.

    So I’m worried that Ubisoft are rushing these games out, while damaging the quality of the games. I will pick up AC4 on PS4, but if it’s shit, I will be done with the series.

    @1 Conversely, in my opinion the series went from strength to strength right up to and including Revelations, which was the best of an increasingly good series, for me. AC3 was painfully award though, the transition from Haytham to Connor was a painful slap in the face. That said, everything I disliked about 3 looks to be improved on or sidestepped in 4. So I’m still looking forward to it.
