I pretty much loved Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon this year. It had enough neon lasers to attract a COBRA army and was more 80s than Mr T’s popularity. The game has sold well. So damn well in fact, that Ubisoft has plans to keep those sales rolling for a little while longer.
Speaking to GameInformer via Joystiq, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot labeled Blood Dragon as a “mini-AAA” game that had sold over a million units so far. Alongside that game, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger had also done pretty well, so clearly there’s some demand for this model of gaming. A demand that Ubisoft will be happy to supply going forward.
Guillemot also mentioned extending Blood Dragon into retail, saying that "maybe we’ll go retail at one point so we’ll be able to achieve a bit more." I like this model of gaming personally. Short and sweet, put away when finished. Wham, bam thank you ma’am.
That, and riding a blood dragon with laser gatling guns attached to its shoulders amidst an ocean of explosions is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.
