Ubisoft Q3: Assassin's Creed 3 12m, Far Cry 3 4.5m shipped

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Vita smashing 3DS in the only metric that really matters to true hardcore gamers™

I hereby suggest we only measure handhelds according to The Ubisoft Index.

It's crazy how they don't give a shit about the handheld market. They were present at the beginning with Ghost Recon 3DS, since then, nothing. It doesn't make any sense!

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.

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.

Took me a few seconds to realize that Autres is just simply French for other :lol

What the heck happened to the Wii sales? Did Just Dance stop selling or is it some other title that explains the huge dropoff?

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.

It's crazy how they don't give a shit about the handheld market. They were present at the beginning with Ghost Recon 3DS, since then, nothing. It doesn't make any sense!
The handheld market outside of Japan sucks. Neither Vita nor 3DS sell much software, so why make games for it?

Anecdotal, but my friends who played both on consoles did not seem to notice or care about the performance issues.
I only played Far Cry 3 in splitscreen co-op on a PS3 and it was awful but I thought "well... it is splitscreen". Never experienced it for myself how bad it is.

Well, Julian Gollop left and is making his own project now.
Good. Good.

At a different pub? Indie? Kickstarter?

ACIII is my less favorite game in the series... I can't even bring myself to go back and complete the side trophies like I always do.

The locations setting was the most boring I've ever seen in years.

Wonder how the next AC will sell. I mean it seems like most players were rather disappointed and I'd imagine that the casual crowd was quickly bored by it.
