Assassin's Creed III has sold 3.5 million, estimates Ubisoft

Ubisoft’s latest financial report has estimated that Assassin’s Creed III moved 3.5 million copies during its launch week.

An impressive figure on its own, but made even more significant considering this means Connor’s American adventure sold double the amount Assassin’s Creed: Revelations achieved during its opening week last November.

The French publisher recorded a loss of €58.1 million ($74.4 million) for the first half of the 2012-13 financial year, primarily attributed to development and marketing costs for Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 3.

Ubisoft upped its forecasts for second-half from between €1.16 billion and €1.20 billion to between €1.20 billion and €1.26 billion. Q3 sales are expected to hit €740 - €800 million.

Elsewhere, Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot revealed that Just Dance 4 has performed “in line” with expectations, while Far Cry 3 has “achieved among the best playtest scores in Ubisoft’s history, confirming the game’s outstanding quality.”
