Assassin's Creed: Valhalla first arrived last November and in that time, it's become Ubisoft's second most profitable title in the French publisher's history. That was announced during their financial results yesterday, covering the first half of the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

Sadly, they didn't specify what was their most profitable game. Far Cry 5 remains Ubisoft's top seller at 25 million copies, though when you factor in potential development costs, that doesn't necessarily mean it's their most profitable venture.

Speaking within this report, Ubisoft's Chief Financial Officer, Frédérick Duguet, confirmed:

We delivered a solid performance in Q2, with revenue well above target. It was driven by the depth and the strength of our portfolio of owned IPs, including the remarkable ongoing success of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. We relied on continued stronger structural trends from our back-catalog, up 23% vs. FY20 while PRI excluding mobile was solidly up 16%.

Within this meeting, Ubisoft also confirmed that Far Cry 6's early sales were in line with Assassin's Creed Odyssey, reporting that compared to Far Cry 5, playtime per player was up 25%.
