Ubisoft is always promoting its games and respects the fans with many updates, supporting its games in a very smart way such as the recent update released for For Honor or even the DLCs for Far Cry 5. But all the financial data Ubisoft revealed makes us question whether the digital sales will surpass the physical format in the video game industry.
It’s clear that the trend continues to rise and that there are still games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that are also bought physically, even though many people are re-selling their copies once they’ve finished the game.
