It appears the better threequel sold less. I hope they make a next-gen Far Cry though, that game was very refreshing.

Damn, AC3 did crazy good.
I hope they won't stick with Connor and the USA for that reason. D:

And this makes Assassin's Creed 3 the biggest Assassin's Creed by about 1-2 million.

That's also a pretty huge performance for Far Cry 3.

And thus, Ubisoft are given no incentive at all to stop releasing buggy games that run like shit on consoles.

Worst part of these news is that it basically confirms we are gonna see Connor again...

My last hope is that they just make Connor travel to some other part of the world.

The last survey hinted at co-op so it's presumably Connor and Aveline in some U.S. location.

AC3 did not seem to deserve breaking records from the reception it got. Still have not finished it :(

It definitely didn't. It's the worst game in the series, and probably the worst running game in the series.

It seems yet again that excellent choice setting gave AC enormous sales despite mixed reception from critics/enthusiast gamers. We had the same situation with Assassin's Creed 1.

Hopefully i can use Aveline 100% of the time.
And hopefully she doesn't sucks ass like Connor (haven't played the vita game).

I'll agree with the second half there, but I actually would put AC3 right behind 2 and Brotherhood. Ahead of 1 and Revelations.

Full results supposedly comes out after the EU stock market closing, in about one hour.

Edit: Actually, they messed up. Two hours too early for the PR!

Looks like they sold more software on the Wii in some quarters. Is that the result of Just Dance? I didn't think it was that huge.

Did Ubisoft ever hinted at Beyond Good & Evil 2 being shifted to next gen (as opposed to being completely canned)? I think if they market it right, that could really end up doing good (>2 millions), even though the first one was a total flop.

Anecdotal, but my friends who played both on consoles did not seem to notice or care about the performance issues.

That Ghost Recon game was awesome too. I'd gladly buy a sequel. X-Com mixed with Ghost Recon? Yep.

Whereas both Brotherhood and Revelations sold a little less than their predecessors, sales of the numbered releases have been strongly consistent; I believe all three are somewhere north of 10m.

Well, since Rabbids Rumble was Ubi's biggest 3DS title this FY, that's not too surprising.

The only one I'm unsure about is Assassin's Creed 1, where the highest number I saw was 9 million.

It's been a few years though since then.

It only shows what a good setting that spikes interest of the audience can do. I think it's no coincidence that 57% of Ubi's revenues come from NA, up from 50% a year ago.

Yeah I gotta say Far Cry 3 is a great game. I had a really great time with it, but I hope they come up with a better story for Far Cry 4.

I'm not a big fan of the whole "the whole point is that it's a stupid story, it's a critique to videogame stories" thing...How about making a good story first and then do the whole irony thing?

Vita had half as much revenue as Wii U? That's either good news for AC:L or bad news for Wii U. I suspect it's the latter.

The handheld market outside of Japan sucks. Neither Vita nor 3DS sell much software, so why make games for it?

Oh, I totally remember reading about it on RPS. Wonder what it'll be like, the blog makes it look like it'll be very close to the original but in 3D. Thanks!
