Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed 4 do the numbers for Ubisoft

Thursday, 15th May 2014 20:36 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Ubisoft shared some unit figures today during its financial call to investors, and the firm sounded rather pleased with how well Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag fared at market.

According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, per Joystiq, “Far Cry 3 has now sold 9 million units since its release in December 2012.”

The last we heard back in May 2013, those figures stood at 6 million – but those where shipped numbers, not sold.

The firm’s year-end financial report also stated that Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag shipped 11 million copies. Not bad at all, but slightly down when you compare the shipped figures with Assassin’s Creed 3 which shipped 12.5 million as of May 2013 which was up 500,000 from 12 million in February of that year.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is out this fall on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Far Cry 4 was announced today for a November release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    Yeah they don’t need to release The Division if they expect more sales like these this fall from Farcry 4, and two gens worth AC’s. Not to mention Watch Dogs.

    @SlayerGT yep. A bit more time in the oven rarely hurts a game, glad Ubi can afford it.

    @Brenna Hillier Right? Especially for The Division. As a huge fan of Rainbow, The Division is by far one of my most anticipated next gen games. Hope it doesn’t fall victim to the same dev probs :-/
