Assassin's Creed Valhalla Player Numbers

We've known for a while that Assassin's Creed Valhalla is the property's most commercially successful instalment, but we've never been told how many units it's actually sold. However, Ubisoft has just confirmed that the open world title has surpassed 20 million players — an impressive feat, and a figure that suggests sales numbers must be rather high.

For a single-player release, having 20 million players probably puts it up there with some of the generation's heaviest hitters. But of course, it does help that Valhalla has been made available through subscription services like PS Plus — 20 million players certainly doesn't equate to 20 million copies sold.

Still, it just goes to show how much of a win the open world RPG formula has been for Assassin's Creed. Odyssey had already leapfrogged Origins, and Valhalla has sped past both of them. It'll be interesting, then, to see how Assassin's Creed Mirage fares next year — a game that's smaller in scope, harkening back to more traditional Creed titles.
