Update: During Ubisoft's earnings call, the company revealed the sell-through percentage for Assassin's Creed 3 is around 70 percent. Applying that to shipment figures of 12 million, that translates into 8.4 million units sold. Ubisoft also noted that 1 million of the 4.5 million Far Cry 3 copies which shipped were for PC.

Ubisoft revealed Assassin's Creed 3 shipments and digital sales combined are now over the 12 million mark, while Far Cry 3 has shipped and digitally distributed 4.5 million copies of its own. The Assassin's Creed 3 figure represents a near-70 percent increase on the corresponding amount for the series' previous game, Revelations.

In December, Ubisoft announced it had sold 7 million copies of Assassin's Creed 3, making it the fastest-selling game in the company's history. This new figure is for shipments, but it still indicates the game continues to do impressively at retail.
