It seems that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has become something of a success for Ubisoft, with the insane 80s inspired spin-off managing to reach 500,000 copies sold across all formats in less than two months, while also helping to boost sales of the full version of Far Cry 3.
Speaking to GI.biz, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said he was "very happy" with the performance of both Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, each of which have enjoyed success as digital download titles based upon Ubisoft's existing retail brands.
The success of Blood Dragon and Gunslinger means that Ubisoft will be looking to explore the formula further in the future with other brand extensions touted as downloadable offerings. Sequels to Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and CoJ: Gunslinger could possibly see the light of day too, thanks to the sales figures.
Both Blood Dragon and Gunslinger are available on the Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points each.
