Still going strong, this isn't even including the digital sales. I still play these games simply because they're enjoyable and there isn't anything comparable like them, kinda the same reason I play Yakuza.

I just hope they continue to skip years. Game of this scale benefit from not being rushed.

I recall hearing that they're taking next year off. Does anybody know if that's correct?

Digital ratio from Origins to Odyssey is higher though, it has been confirmed that Odyssey has had the best launch of the series in the PS4/Xbox One gen.
