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."
