Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate racks up $14.8 million in digital sales

1 min read


We’ve regularly heard about this holiday’s underperforming games. According to brick and mortar stores, games like Halo 5: Guardians, Star Wars: Battlefront and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate haven’t quite performed to retailers’ lofty expectations.

It’s a sad situation, especially for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which has done a lot to repair the franchise’s tattered public perception. I’ve rather enjoyed the game – even though it still has so many issues inherited from the franchise’s legacy. I must admit that I’ve gotten a wee bit bored with it, but it’s done so much to push the series forward – and help set it back on course.

It deserves to sell better. Only it may not be selling to badly at all, once you factor in digital sales.

That is, at least, according to SuperData Research, who say that the game has racked up nearly $15 million in digital sales to date, surpassing the miserable digital sales that its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed Unity scored. That game, of course, was well known for being close to broken at launch, filled with bugs, glitches, and performance issues that made the game unpleasant to play.

While Syndicate had its own issues, its general performance was pretty good – with most of its bugs just the “missing texture” or “missing polygon” sort. Even its PC port fared well. Giving the thing a shiny 8, Alessandro said of the PC Port:

“While the franchise still needs to overcome some inherent flaws, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate feels refreshingly different and a joy to play. With believable characters and fluid gameplay that feels trimmed of its excess fat, it is the best Assassin’s Creed game to come out in years.”

      Start over again. That is how we rolled in the 90s.

      I welcome it. As long as all future AC games are as good as this one I’m all for it!

          I see you have the same hate for AC I have for MGS V. Nice…

            It’s not hate, it’s apathy.

    GOOD 🙂 You see Ubisoft, you can do female characters and the compromise between Jacob and Evie worked for all demographics including a single player only game.

    Well done. This and Until Dawn are my sleeper hits for 2015.
