Assassin's played by 35 million

Creative director claims a lot of people played it

Ubisoft creative director reckons that the first game in the series sold over eight million copies and was played by up to 35 million gamers. We bet you were one of them.

"We recalculated, my producer and I, that roughly between thirty to thirty five million people played Assassin's Creed 1... if you count all the rentals, the second-hands," Patrice Désilets told Joystiq.

In case you hadn't heard, Assassin's Creed 2 is due to launch later this year. Chances are you'll play that too at some point. A PSP Assassin's Creed game is also in the works. But maybe you won't bother with that one.
