It's only been out a week, but Ubisoft has estimated that in that time Assassin's Creed III has sold in excess of 3.5 million copies, more than doubling the number of units shifted of previous game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations within the same time period last year.

These figures didn't make the cut for Ubisoft's latest financial report for the six month period ending on 30th September however, which saw the company making a €32.3 million loss. This is actually not all that uncommon for the spring/summer period, usually referred to as the 'summer drought', with all of the biggest and most lucrative games - like ACIII - releasing in Q4, while others are usually pushed into Q1.

As well as Assassin's Creed III, Far Cry 3 is next on Ubi's release slate, which according to Ubisoft's CEO, Yves Guillemot "has achieved among the best playtest scores in Ubisoft's history." Guillemot added: "Following on from the steady advances we have made over the last 24 months, the company expects to achieve a record second-half performance."
