Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon has sold over a million, could go retail

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.

  1. Neon infused explosions while cheesy 80s synth plays in the background and Michael Biehn quips away about being a badass of note…

    Well good for them.

    Anyone else feel that Blood Dragon had the feeling of old schools expansions. Using the existing game but giving you so much more?

    LAZORS!!! The Rocky 4 tune playing in the end battle was freaking awesome. They have to make a proper sequel for this.

      There’s the Rocky 4 theme during a battle?! Oh my sweet word, I must play this! I actually purchased it on XBox Live on the weekend – just gotta download it! I think I will have to prioritise it in the queue now.

    I loved this game. Probably the most fun I’ve had this year as far as gaming. Not often I spend most of the time laughing like a lunatic. If you haven’t played this yet, get it!
