Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Mirage sales are off to an excellent start, making it the company’s best current-gen launch in terms of units sold. Long-time series fans had been clamoring for a game in the vein of older entries, and it certainly helps that Mirage launched with a $50 price tag.
