In accordance with the developer, the previous noticed a “further acceleration of the already very sharp increase delivered in the first quarter in terms of daily player engagement,” and the latter boasts file month-to-month energetic customers (MAUs).
Increasing additional on these two titles, Ubisoft’s affirmative that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey‘s participant engagement and sell-through are way larger than Origins‘, and Rainbow Six Siege‘s MAUs have been larger in Q2 2019 than Q2 2018. The hit Tom Clancy title has over 50 million registered gamers and noticed a 27% viewership enhance for its e-sports occasion, Six Main Raleigh.
