Assassin's Creed Unity and Rogue shipped 10 million copies in 2014

Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue shipped a combined total of 10 million copies last year.

By comparison, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag (available across the same platforms) shipped 11 million copies as of May 2014.

The figures were revealed during Ubisoft’s latest financial report, in which Yves Guillemot commented on Unity’s launch issues.

He said: “Each time there’s a new transition of consoles, we try to create engines that take full advantage of the capacity of those consoles. In the case of Unity, we had to redo 100 per cent of the engine. So when you do that, it’s painful for all the group… and everything has to be recalibrated.”

“With this game, a few things were not perfect when the game was launched. But the engine has been created, and it’s going to help the brands to shine in the future.”

Guillemot continued: “Next fiscal year, we will launch a new Assassin’s Creed game based on the same technology that powered Unity. We are very confident that the experiences learned, along with the customer feedback, will help us take Assassin’s Creed to the next level of quality and innovation.”

Assassin’s Creed Unity launched on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with Rogue available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Both titles were released in November 2014.
