Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Roars Past 1m Sold, Retail Release Possible

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has shifted more than a million copies in less than six months and Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot reckons the game might get a retail release.

Alongside Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is part of Ubisoft’s “mini-AAA” development model which has seen the publisher strive to produce digital games of the highest quality. The results have been impressive, both critically and commercially.

Indeed, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has sold over one million copies across PC, XBLA and PSN within its first six months on sale. Such has been the tongue-in-cheek shooter’s success, that Guillemot reckons further sales could be added by releasing the game on disc. "Maybe we'll go retail at one point,” he said, “so we'll be able to achieve a bit more."

If they released it as a retail disc, it would have to be bundled with something, maybe Call Of Juarez: Gunslinger or Far Cry 3, maybe even Far Cry Classic (whenever that comes out) because I don't see how they could charge more than £20 for the content on disc, I mean the game only lasts around 5-10 hours. (at least for me)

Good call #2,even without the sale,it's only £9.99 which is cheaper than what the game shops will charge.

far cry HD & blood dragon on the retail release or its just not worth the time to create artwork or anything else, if 1 million people already bought it [myself included on PC] who is really left to buy it

that is - unless they release an expansion [along the lines of what hard reset did when it got it's retail release] which it does need, as I found it way too short - started it & finished it yesterday

I agree with #1 all the way. If they were to go retail it better be a lot cheaper than most games

Rather than release this I think a series of games based on the system. Who can't see predator or other ideas of its vein based upon this system.

I'll definitely buy it on disc. Especially if it comes bundled with the Far Cry HD game we're supposed to be getting sometime soon.

Can't wait to pick this game up in the sale tomorrow!

Aside from this, I really hope Ubisoft are working on some DLC for Far Cry 3. As incredible of a game as it is, I think I can safely say that we've all played it out to the max, and we're in desperate need of a reason to return :D.
