Far Cry 5 Breaks Franchise Sales Records, Becomes Series' Fastest Selling Title

Far Cry 5 Breaks Franchise Sales Records, Becomes Series' Fastest Selling Titleā€

Far Cry 5 has hit a major sales milestone, becoming the fastest-selling game in the franchise's history.

Digital distribution accounted for more than 50 percent of Far Cry 5's sales. This is the second biggest launch for an Ubisoft game ever, following Tom Clancy's The Division, which came out in 2016. The company's top title is now held by Tom Clancy's The Division.

It's unlikely that Far Cry 5 will remain ahead of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds for longer than a week, but that any game can beat PUBG Corp's blockbuster is an impressive feat. It's unclear why Ubisoft made a decision to go with these particular skins for this first live event, but they will certainly help players standout in co-op.

"Far Cry 5, like the real Montana, is a vast and gorgeous playground filled with colorful stories for players to enjoy and share", stated Laurent Detoc, President of Ubisoft, Americas. Check out the infographic below to several more. "We're grateful to newcomers and fans of the series who have joined us in Hope County and have collectively grown our community".

Along with sales, Ubisoft touted statistics on the game's online presence, specifically pointing to Twitch and YouTube.
