Ubisoft pleased with performance of standalone digital title

Far Cry 3 spin-off Blood Dragon has sold over 500k digital copies across PC, PSN and XBLA.

UbisoftCEO Yves Guillemot provided the figure in an interview with Games Industry, though didn’t mention how the units were split among platforms.

Guillemot did, however, mention that Far Cry 3 sales were boosted on PC based on Blood Dragon’s positive reception and that he was “very happy” with the performances of both titles.

The development team has already pitched a sequel for the standalone effort, and Guillemot also said that the game’s critical and commercial success as a companion product is something that Ubisoft will be looking into further.
