Ubisoft Have Extremely Strong Q3, With Assassin’s Creed III Shipping 12 Million Units

Assassin’s Creed III was a “record-breaker” shipping 12 million units – which is a 70% increase over Revelations, whilst Far Cry 3 also did exceedingly well shipping 4.5 million units – a figure considered to be much higher than expected. Just Dance 4 also managed to ship 8 million units.

Holy crap! Now I don't feel bad for not even playing a demo! (Looks good, just not my cup of tea.) That's an awesome success. Those are CoD like volumes. Incredible.

Temporary1269d ago

I still to this day have never played any Assassin's Creed game. I guess ive been missing out.

WilliamH1269d ago (Edited 1269d ago )

You could probably give the first one a miss, just watch youtube videos to get the story. Start with AC2

guitarded771269d ago (Edited 1269d ago )

Yeah, some are better than others, but it's worth checking out. I didn't really like the 1st one that much, but thought 2 was amazing. I have them all, but haven't finished them all yet. I recommend beginning with AC2.

EDIT: I posted at the same time as WilliamH, so I didn't see his recommendation for beginning with AC2... so that's two recommendations for AC2 without any influence.

Those are some impressive numbers for AC3. I am getting kinda burned out on the series though. Maybe next gen it will feel fresher with better (tighter) gameplay, and sharper visuals.

Temporary1269d ago

Yeah I think ill do that. Thanks. I might even just do AC1 just to see how the game evolved. I'll power through a quick play through of the first just out of curiosity.

dgonza401269d ago

Yes, please play the first one. It's important to the story. I don't understand why people tell you to skip it.

UnholyLight1269d ago

Word of warning. ACIII is TOTAL SHIT. ACII is the best, with the most kickass character ever by the name of Ezio!

Wow, Far Cry 3 shipped that much?

Awesome. I was under the impression that sales for it were pretty bad.

Septic1269d ago

Nah they were quite clever and really reduced the price of it before Christmas to be competitive.

grailly1269d ago

that was a great choice on their part. I wasn't going to get because I despise Farcry 2. but with the price drop and my friends telling me it's great I went out and got it.

Septic1269d ago

Well deserved in my opinion. Far Cry 3 was my GOTY of 2012.

The sales reflect the quality of their games.

Cod doesn't fit with this logic I'm afraid.
Except for CoD4.

Belking1269d ago (Edited 1269d ago )

Best publisher out there IMO. Sorry fanboys.

WilliamH1269d ago

Ubisoft are multiplatform, why would there be fanboys

Belking1269d ago

"Ubisoft are multiplatform"why would there be fanboys"

You pointing that out perfectly explains that. Them being multi-plat has nothing to do with it and only fanboys care to point that out. Thanks for providing proof.

Eamon1269d ago

By fanboys, I think he is referring to exclusive publishers like MS and Sony.

landog1269d ago (Edited 1269d ago )

....he means fanboys don't like to praise multiplat developers, they only like to claim first party devs are the best...

and he has a point, all you see around here is quantric dream, quantic dream, QUANTIC DREAM...lol when they make a GAME, let me know. that last movie they released, heavy something, bored me to tears!

naughty dog, 343 industries, ect...ect...thats all fanboys like to yell about, when honestly, multiplat games are usually the best, yeah, there are a few great exclusives, but 95% of the best games are on all platforms

Hicken1269d ago

I think he was asking "Why bring up fanboys at all?"

grailly1269d ago

meh, I actually think 2K is way better.

borderlands 2, XCOM and bioshock: infinite and GTA 5 all crammed in a one year time period is pretty impressive. On top of that they have way less DLC and slap-on software(Uplay, Origin,...) bullish*t than the other publishers.

yep 2K is better, and I thought AC3 was terrible.

Qrphe1269d ago (Edited 1269d ago )

I'd even say XSEED games just because of what they do and I enjoy their published games the most.

But this all comes down to opinions of course and obvious trolling in the first place.

SP3333D-O1269d ago

I didn't think AC III was as great as it could have been, but I still liked it. Far Cry 3, on the other hand, turned out to be fantastic, and it wasn't even on my radar until the positive reviews started pouring in. Glad it sold well.

grailly1269d ago

yeah, it's really a great game. I still don't get how the quality could be so disparate though. On one hand there was the great acting and writing in the villains, and then there's jason brody... And a LOT of story non-sense... And there's a great gameplay, and some of the best linear FPS missions in a while, despite being an open world game. and then there's the final "boss"... I wonder what happened there.
