Today, Ubisoft reported its H1 2022 earnings, and one point of note were the early Far Cry 6 sales being in line with those of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. While Ubisoft didn’t disclose the exact sales numbers in the report, what we know of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s popularity points to this being a major win for Ubisoft.
In its first-half 2021-22 earnings figures, Ubisoft made note of how Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was already the second largest profit generating game in the company’s history, and it had reached this milestone in less than 12 months. That’s an impressive feat, but another win for Ubisoft in their earnings report is the note that Far Cry 6 early sales are in line with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Obviously, we’ll have to wait until Ubisoft’s next report to see how Far Cry 6 fares over a longer period, but it’s still a solid start.
The earnings report went on to say this about Far Cry 6:
At Shacknews, we tend to agree that this is a decent offering of Far Cry. You can read my Far Cry 6 review for my full thoughts, but I did praise the open-world beauty of Yara and the gunplay. If you’re a fan of the Far Cry series or Ubisoft open-world games in general, it’s not a bad option to burn 50-100 hours of your time.
