In spite of the concerns, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey performs good on PC platform when it comes to sales. According to statistics taken from Steam, game’s highest concurrent player number has already surpassed the previous title: Assassin’s Creed Origins.
The all-time peak number of concurrent players of the Assassin’s Creed Origins was 41,541. For Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, this number rises to 61,984. We must state that these numbers are not 100% representatives of game’s sales on Steam platform. They give us an insight on how the game performs when compared to the previous title.
Game’s overall launch performance leads us to another key point, the all-time performance. According to Steamspy, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has already sold 200-500K copies on Steam platform. In contrast, Assassin’s Creed Origins has only sold between 1-2 million copies on Steam. This shows the performance difference between two latest titles of Assassin’s Creed series.
Ubisoft previously announced that they will not release a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2019. It can be predicted that game’s overachieving performance will help the team develop a new title with the support of players. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has launched on October 5, 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.
