Far Cry 2 sells a million copies

By on
Ubisoft is congratulating itself today proclaiming that their critically-acclaimed shooter Far Cry 2 has sold over 1 million copies worldwide, in less than three weeks of availability at retail. Of course this includes multiple platforms PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 but it is nonetheless a pretty good start considering the amount of high profile games currently competing for your attention.


Far Cry 2 is an ambitious open-world shooter set in a war-torn Africa, complete with warlords, destructible environments, dynamic weather effects, and a 24 hour day-night cycle. The game is a sequel of sorts to the Crytek-developed original released for PCs in 2004, and has been getting pretty good marks from reviewers across the web. Check out our in-depth performance report here and a few reviews at Gamespot, Metacritic and CVG.
