Far Cry 5 Sets Records for Franchise and Ubisoft

Posted: 03:19PM

It was just last week Far Cry 5 launched, but it has already set a franchise record. In fact, it more than doubled the specific record of first week sell-through, which Far Cry 4 had held, making it the second biggest launch for Ubisoft, following Tom Clancy's The Division ($310 million for the first week). Over half of the Far Cry 5 sales were via digital distribution. To mark this new record, Ubisoft has pulled together some other statistics, and put some on an infographic you can see below.

Some statistics not on that graphic though would be the 55,000 hours streamed on Twitch with YouTube videos getting over 117 million views. These are records for an Ubisoft title in its first week, and evidence of how user generated content helps drive people to join the Far Cry community.
