Far Cry 2 sells a million copies

By on November 12, 2008, 9:29 AM
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.

FarCry 1, story wise, was a good game up until the twist. But technically speaking, the difficulty was a little off. It was also a little buggy out of version 1.0. I can recall being killed by invisible fish and NPC characters who die for no good reason. For those reason's I didn't buy FarCry 2. I'll hold off for solid reviews and wait for the pre-order crowd's feedback. If all is well, I think this game might have solid multiple week sales.

it's probably more of "shipped more than 1 million copies", and there is a big difference between shipping 1 million and sold 1 million. sometimes distributors like to brag to boost sales, very much like SONY often does.
