Assassin’s Creed 3 Crosses 12M Units Sold – Ubisoft

By   /   4 years ago

Ubisoft has revealed total sales for Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 in their third-quarter financial report.

According to the report Assassin’s Creed 3 has now crossed the 12 million barrier worldwide, while Far Cry 3 is doing good with over 4.5 million sales. Both figures include units shipped to retailers and sold to digital stores.

During the launch week of Assassin’s Creed 3, the game sold over 3.5 million copies and in just around 1.5 months the game had sold more than 7 million units worldwide. Where as Far Cry 3 is concerned, it’s surprising to see Ubisoft mention that the game sold “much higher-than-expected”; since the game is a masterpiece. The firm should have more faith in its titles.

Both of the titles helped Ubisoft reach $1.09 billion sales for its third financial quarter, which ended Dec. 31, 2012. Compared to the same period of 2011, the figure is up by 23%.

The financial report also revealed the firm to have revised their expectations for the year. It’s now expecting sales of between €1.24 billion and €1.26 billion for the 2012-13 fiscal year, which ends March 31. The company’s previous guidance was between €1.20 billion and €1.26 billion.
