Ubisoft seem to be going from hit to hit these last few years. Far Cry 2 is their latest bread winner, selling more than a million copies worldwide since it was first released three weeks ago. Not bad at all, especially considering the amount of A-grade competition launching in the same period, as well as all that recession jazz. NZ Gamer quite liked Far Cry 2 and gave the game a respectable 8.9 in our review.
"The holiday quarter is off to a solid start with the successful launch of Far Cry 2,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. "The game is well on track to achieve our expectations for the year."
The unique game play of Far Cry 2 has impressed players around the globe, offering a true open world environment that allows gamers to create their very own individual game experience. Built upon the acclaimed Dunia engine, they are offered a lush visual landscape, where they can live a realistic 24-hour day to night cycle in the beautiful African savannah.
