Assassin's Creed 2 Sales Record Announced

1.6 million units sold worldwide
Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed II has sold 1.6 million units worldwide according to the company's internal estimates, a 32% growth over the previous title. In a vast open world environment, the game invites players to incarnate Ezio, a privileged young noble in Renaissance Italy who's been betrayed by the rival ruling families of Italy. Ezio's subsequent quest for vengeance plunges players into a story that offers more variety in missions, surprising and engaging new gameplay elements, diverse weapons and a profound character progression that will appeal to fans of the original Assassin's Creed as well as entice players new to the brand.
