It seems that the legendary saga of Ubisoft Assassin’s Creed always manages to sell! After an AC Mirage with lackluster sales even though it was not bad and a Nexus VR for a more than niche market, one could begin to wonder if the franchise had not reached its limits.

And the first indications say no! The next blockbuster in the saga, Assassin’s Creed Shadows, formerly code Red, in 16th century Japan has been made official for the end of the year with a very high quality trailer, and fans clearly seem to have been won over. Because despite the few controversies that make some haters talk, and the relatively exorbitant prices, pre-orders are said to be doing very well.

AC Shadows pre-orders are a hit despite daring prices

It was insider Tom Henderson of Insider Gaming who obtained the information internally: “AC Shadows pre-orders are looking very promising. I don’t have the exact numbers, but anyone who has them has not been disappointed.”

The kind of reassuring news for Ubisoft which has found its savior once again with its favorite goose that lays the golden eggs. And it is all the more surprising given multiple factors:

  • The excessive prices of the different editions (€69.99 basic, €109.99 for Gold and €129.99 for Ultimate), i.e. €40 more minimum just to play 3 days in advance,
  • The overall reputation of Ubisoft in recent months and the latest Assassin’s Creed games,
  • No gameplay has not yet been shown,
  • Rumors that suggest AC Shadows will have Battle Passes,
  • And the few controversies that took place around the game’s protagonists, Naoe and Yasuke.

Despite all this, Assassin’s Creed Shadows seems to be pre-selling like hotcakes before its official release on November 15.

Controversies which ultimately give good publicity to the game?

AC Shadows has caused a lot of discussion since its official release. Indeed, the sumptuous trailer for the game made us understand that there would be again 2 protagonists for this episode in feudal Japan:

  • Naoea Japanese ninja,
  • Yasukean African samurai from Mozambique.

Naoe’s father and the entire character of Yasuke come from real historical facts, but some players seemed to be unhappy with the varied casting generally accusing Ubisoft of checking as many boxes as possible. Long, sterile debates have obviously flourished on the networks, but in the end it seems that all this was beneficial for Ubisoft if these pre-order figures turn out to be accurate.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows looks very promising in any case, and we can’t wait to see new images about it, especially gameplay. Summer Game Fest is coming at the beginning of June, so why not?
