A blockbuster in every sense of the word, we'd say.

Today, Ubisoft has announced that the critically acclaimed Assassin's Creed III has surpassed the 7 million sell-through mark, making it the fastest-selling game in the company's long history.

Since the popular title's launch, gamers have racked up over 82 centuries worth of gaming time and have committed over 3 billion in-game assassinations. As for the multiplayer entertainment, more than twice as many people have joined that fray in comparison to last year's Assassin's Creed: Revelations . So far, there have been over 250 million assassinations performed in more than 5 billion multiplayer sessions. …those numbers are just ridiculous.

Said Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key:

"The reception for Assassin’s Creed III has been exceptional, and this success has positioned the game among the best sellers of the 2012 holiday season”. We knew we had something special on our hands when Assassin’s Creed III was launched, and we’re really excited and proud to see how much fans are enjoying the latest installment in the franchise."

Also, don't forget the ACIII Season Pass, which boasts The Tyranny of King Washington, an all-new single-player campaign told via three episodic content packs.
