Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon sells 1 million, could be getting physical release

One of year’s great surprises, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has sold more than a million copies in less than six months and Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot says it might not be done quite yet.

Speaking to Game Informer, Guillemot said that between the runaway success of Blood Dragon and solid sales of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, the company’s “mini-AAA” development model had been proven and would continue to be a focus for the publisher going forward. Indeed, Guillemot has previously lobbied for greater digital sales transparency this year, presumably due to the success of these new mini-AAA games.

These plans might well include a retail release of Blood Dragon, to “achieve a bit more” with the game according to Guillemot. The game’s creative director, Dean Evans, has said before that he’s hoping to work on a sequel to the game.
