Assassin's Creed Sold Eight Million

Assassin’s Creed 2’s creative director Patrice Désilets has revealed that the first game in the franchise has “sold some eight million copies.”

The title, which released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in November 2007 and for PC in 2008, had sold six million units as of April last year, Ubisoft said previously.

“We recalculated, my producer and I, that roughly between 30-35 million people played Assassin’s Creed… if you count all the rentals, the second-hands,” Désilets told Joystiq.

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 2 is due to launch later this year. A PSP Assassin’s Creed game is also currently in development.
