Ubisoft Publishes ‘First Week Stats’ For Assassin’s Creed Mirage
It was almost a week ago that Assassin’s Creed Mirage was released, and while it hasn’t moved mountains, it has proven to be a hit within the community at large. It’s a return to form for the series, offering players an adventure that can be completed within around fifteen hours that’s spread across a map more akin to the pre-Origins games.
To celebrate that first week of play, Ubisoft has taken to social circles to share some interesting data. While the social team neglected to provide any solid figures, there was a reference that the number of players on Mirage in this first week is ‘in line with’ Origins and Odyssey. Reportedly, Origins hit around 1.5 million sales in the first week – has Mirage secured a similar figure?
To The Numbers
In lieu of concrete player numbers, Ubisoft parted ways with some interesting data that doesn’t really tell us too much about the size and scope of Mirage at present. In the last week, the following data points have been recorded:
479 years spent parkouring the rooftops of Baghdad
60 million Leaps of Faith
1.2 million street cats pet
Personally, I don’t know if those numbers really add up. I’ve pet a cat once in my entire playthrough but I’ve performed a Leap of Faith probably more than one hundred times. But who am I to question what’s coming from the horse’s mouth?
In closing, it was also noted that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is Ubisoft’s biggest new-gen launch in terms of unit sales – so that’s something.
