Ubisoft was founded in 1986, 28 years ago, but its most popular franchise, Assassin's Creed, is less than a decade old, according to updated sales figures from the publisher. The Assassin's Creed franchise has sold 73 million units, beating out the Just Dance franchise which has sold 48 million units.

The next three spots are by three different Tom Clancy franchises. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell franchise has sold 30 million units, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six franchise has sold 26 million units, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon franchise has sold 25 million units.

Other facts Ubisoft has released include being the "2nd largest in-house development staff in the world with 29 studios in 19 countries." The publisher also has more than 9,200 employees.

Aren't all those Tom Clancy's one big franchise? :o

Nah, Splinter Cell is way different than say Ghost Recon. I personally wouldn't regard them as one franchise.

If you add up the Tom Clancy series and lump them together Assassin's Creed falls to #2, lol. Ubisoft definitely has a hit on their hands with Assassin's Creed.

Woah, they're bigger than Nintendo...that's almost twice as many employees, and more studios too, I believe...

They're the 2nd largest developer and far from being the 2nd in revenue or profits. I love Ubisoft because they are not affraid of expanding, trying new things and always attempting to improve and become a reference in whatever they do. They pick up the money they earn with Tom Clancy, Assassin's Creed and Just Dance and they invest on what is still not popular but deserve to be.

I am really enjoying AC IV - Black Flag. It has brought me back to the series. I am thinking after Black Flag, I might go back and play/complete AC III and AC 2 Revelations as well. All in time for AC V - Unity and whatever else they got cooking.
