Has the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Reveal Increased Interest in Odyssey?

The data says yes

The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla reveal happened only a couple of weeks ago. But it seems to have generated increased interest in the almost two years old Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Ubisoft recently stated in an earnings call that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was their most-watched trailer ever. With over 100 million views in the first ten days of the trailer releasing. It appears that the hype and positive buzz surrounding Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has helped Odyssey enter the spotlight once again.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has been steadily climbing the UK PS4 charts for a couple of weeks now. In the latest UK Game Charts published Monday 18th May. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is at number 8, up from 13 last week. The game has spent a total of 45 weeks on the chart so far.

Odyssey is also at number 19 on the UK All-Formats chart, only down 2 places from last week. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was also the 13th most downloaded game on the PlayStation Store for April. It will be interesting to see if it is amongst the most downloaded games for May when Sony releases this information.

Twitch views have increased for Odyssey

It’s not just in videogame charts that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is fairing well. The single-player game, originally released in October 2018, is also doing not too shabby on live-streaming platform Twitch.

As I type up this article at 11.00 am on a Monday morning in the UK, Odyssey currently has just under 3,000 viewers on Twitch. That is not too bad considering it is nowhere near peak time. I am fairly certain I saw Assassin’s Creed Odyssey up at around 12,000 views during peak time only a few days ago.

In fact, Twitch data for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey shows that the game has been doing pretty well this month.

The Twitch Viewership History Chart for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey shows that the game peaked at 32,604 viewers for April 29th, the day before the trailer world premiere for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Even after the peak on April 29th, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has being doing rather well on Twitch, averaging 3890 viewers for the month of May. Odyssey is currently sitting at number 58 on Twitch’s most-watched games for May.  This is higher than a lot of newer and more online-focused games.

It is clear this data that the positive hype surrounding Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has helped Odyssey increase in popularity over the past couple of weeks.
