The company talked up the success of the title as part of its second quarter earnings results on Thursday.
Ubisoft said in November 2020 that the 12th major instalment in the franchise sold more units in its first week than any other entry in the series, which had at the time sold over 155 million units since debuting in 2007.

And today, it said Valhalla has been outperforming its predecessor Assassin’s Creed Odyssey “across the board since its release”.
Ubisoft recently revealed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to receive a second year of expansions—a first for the series—and confirmed that a new project codenamed Assassin’s Creed Infinity is in the works.
It said today that the game’s Siege of Paris expansion, which launched in August, “delivered record engagement”, and that it plans to deliver “great new content for year two of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, notably in the second half of the current fiscal year” ending on March 31, 2022.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s next major expansion could be titled ‘Dawn of Ragnarök’, according to a datamine of the game’s latest major update.
It has been claimed that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will be a massive online game set across multiple historical periods, and one that that evolves over time as a live service.
In July, Ubisoft’s chief financial officer Frédérick Duguet called Infinity “an exciting and ambitious project” that will remain “true to Assassin’s Creeds’ legacy of rich narrative experiences”.
And today, Ubisoft confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Infinity will not be a free to play game.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise recorded its strongest sales year to date in the 12 months ended March 31, 2021, Ubisoft said in May.
