It’s champagne all round at Ubisoft this week as Assassin’s Creed 3 takes roost at the all formats chart summit. Confirmed as Ubisoft’s biggest ever launch title – selling almost double that of Assassin’s Creed II and outperforming the publisher’s previous best, last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations by over 117,000 units) – it easily becomes the second biggest launch of the year so far behind EA’s FIFA 13.
Predictions for next week: Halo 4.
