Well, AC may have sold the most but I learned in the UNITY thread that Just Dance is what made Ubisoft what they are.

Well Just Dance surely gave them a bunch of money. I wouldn't be surprised if the music licenses were more expensive than the dev costs. But they were also heavily advertised as well, so that probably ate away a good chunk of the profit.


Not to mention the fact that it is;

A: A franchise that has lost nearly all relevance over night.

B: The odd man out in Ubisoft's primary catalogue of games, making it the exception rather than the rule and certainly not the essence and pinnacle of Ubisoft's game development...

Guess three times who taught me that lesson in the UNITY thread?



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Our numerical friend ? :D

But yeah I additionally forgot to mention that the majority of the JD sales generated $10 less revenue than the AC games if you take the full price.

I still think we will see numerous successors but the decline is quite alarming though not particularly surprising. About 3 million down currently from JD4, which was as well about 3 million down from JD3 during the same period. JD 2015 probably at 3.5m across 6 platforms then lifetime.

You can skip Arena since it wasn't anything spectacular, but you must play Legends! Specially if you enjoyed Origins!

legends contains origins
