Ubisoft has today revealed that the wall-climbing action game Assassin's Creed 3 has sold a whopping 7 million copies worldwide in its first month of launch, putting it as the fastest-selling game in Ubisoft's arsenal of titles.

Ubisoft has also dropped some stats for those wanting to know what 7 million players have been up to. In the solo mission part of the game, players have accumulated more than 82 centuries of gaming time and committed more than 3 billion assassinations which would probably get you put in jail. Moving to multiplayer, Ubisoft claims twice as many players are now participating compared to Assassin's Creed: Revelations modes with more than 250 million assassinations having been performed in more than 5 billion multiplayer sessions.
“The reception for Assassin’s Creed 3 has been exceptional, and this success has positioned the game among the best sellers of the 2012 holiday season” said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA chief marketing & sales officer, Ubisoft. “We knew we had something special on our hands when Assassin’s Creed 3 was launched, and we’re really excited and proud to see how much fans are enjoying the latest installment in the franchise.”
Assassin's Creed 3 is available now on PC, Xbox 360, Wii U and PlayStation 3 at all participating retailers.

So you can fool 7 million people all of the time! A trifle harsh, maybe, but an average game at best...

Glad it sold well, its really good, I'm loving it. Might encourage Ubisoft to make more genuinely new Assassin's Creed games instead of pushing expansion packs as new games.

82 centruries of game time...kinda nuts. Great game though. Keen for the next one, but I don't see how it could go much further in time with out the gameplay changing dramatically. Unless they go back in time.
