Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Sells Over 500k Units On PC, PS3, Xbox 360

Regardless of the issues Ubisoft had keeping its Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon out of the hands of hackers, the company was still able to sell quite a lot of copies of the game. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon surpassed a total of 500,000 units sold across XBLA, PSN and PC, while at the same time didn’t disclose how well the game sold on the individual platforms it was made available on.

As a result of the game’s success both in its sales as well as its response from fans and critics, Ubisoft will be looking into possibly producing more companion products in the future. The fact Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon didn’t require players to own a copy of the original game to play most likely was a very big reason why the game sold as well as it did. I wouldn’t be surprised if sales of Far Cry 3 also improved after Blood Dragon’s release as even though the game was a complete re-imagining of the original game, it still offered a big enough taste of Far Cry 3 where fans of Blood Dragon would probably want to check out the original title.
