ANNO 1800 Is Officially Ubisoft's Fastest-Selling Game In The History Of The Series

It looks like Ubisoft Blue Byte's Anno 1800 is not only a critically acclaimed offering, but also a best-selling one – as the developer is now focusing on delivering the best post-launch content possible...

Ubisoft has revealed that Anno 1800 is the fastest-selling game in the series so far, with 4 times as many players at launch as 2015's Anno 2205, making Anno 1800 not only a critically acclaimed title (sitting at a perfectly fine 81% score on Metacritic), but also one that's quite successful commercially.

The team at Ubisoft Blue Byte has released a special infographic, summarizing some of Anno 1800's big accomplishments – as "players have reached almost 7 billion citizens across their islands, more than three times the global population back in 1899," "players have built over 10 million ships," "players have built over 1 billion grain fields," with more than 3 million islands that have been settled on.

"Anno 1800 has been an incredible journey for all the people working at Ubisoft Blue Byte and we are so happy to see that players really enjoy playing our game," Benedikt Grindel, Managing Director at Ubisoft Blue Byte, said in a press release. "Since the announcement of the game, the community of Anno 1800 has provided us with countless useful feedbacks through our community platform Anno Union and helped us releasing an excellent game. We really feel privileged to have one of the most committed communities of the video game industry. After this amazing and successful launch, we now completely focus on delivering the best post-launch content possible for Anno 1800 and can’t wait to show you more!," as Anno 1800 will receive at least 3 full-blown DLCs in its post-launch phase.

The sales of Anno 1800 may bode well for the upcoming reboot of the Settlers series, that is also being created by Blue Byte – but this time developed in Ubisoft Massive's Snowdrop engine, suggesting that it might be also available for Nintendo Switch, just like Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Take a look:






Welcome to the dawn of the industrial age. The path you choose will define your world. Are you renovator or exploiter? Suppressor or liberator? It's up to you how the world will remember your name. In Anno 1800, players will take charge of their own fortune as they navigate the rapidly evolving technological and malicious political landscape of the 19th century in their quest to build an empire that will stand the test of time. Combining beloved features with innovative gameplay in a memorable new setting, Anno 1800 marks the beginning of a new era for the Anno franchise.

Anno 1800 is available on PC NOW!
