Assassin’s Creed Origins has doubled the launch sales of its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

The news came via Ubisoft’s financial investors briefing yesterday, in which the publisher said that even though Origins sold chiefly the same amount of physical sales as Syndicate, a recent boost in digital sales – now standing at a significant 35 percent – shows Origins doubling Syndicate’s overall first week sales here in the UK.

In the same call, Ubisoft also revealed that “Player Recurring Investment” – DLC, including micro-transactions, to you and me – topped the digital sales of full games for the first time. This means for every full game the publisher sells, it makes more money from PRI than it does the initial sale.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Don’t forget, Final Fantasy XV is getting a crossover event with historical action series Assassin’s Creed as part of free DLC event underway right now.

What do you think of the news that DLC sales has topped sales of full games, eh?

Short. Sweary. Sarky. Streamer. Spartan. Story-driven games make me happiest. Spectacularly bad at shooters, but loves them. Screams a lot playing horror games, but loves those, too.
