Far Cry 3 sales top nine million units to date

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed today that the publisher's open-world first-person shooter Far Cry 3 has sold more than 9 million copies since its multiplatform launch in 2012.

"Far Cry 3 has now sold 9 million units since its release in December 2012, which bodes very well for the launch of Far Cry 4 later this year," Guillemot said during the company's end-of-year earnings call today.

Far Cry 3 had shipped and digitally sold six million units as of May last year. Guillemot noted that the Far Cry series collectively sold almost 3 million additional units during the last fiscal year, making it one of Ubisoft's biggest-selling franchises.
