Oh, and about 3.5 million copies of AC3 sold.

http://www.vg247.com/2012/11/06/assassins-creed-3-has-sold-3-5-million-copies-according-to-ubisoft-estimates/

According to the firm, sales of the third title in the series have doubled those of Assassin's Creed: Revelations during its first week of availability in 2011.

For the first half of the 2012-13 fiscal year ending September 30, Ubisoft reported a loss of €58.1 million ($74.4 million) due to development costs and marketing associated with both Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3.

The firm believes such expenditures will pay-off during its third fiscal quarter, which ends on December 31.

Ubisoft has raised its second-half expectations from between €1.16 billion and €1.20 billion to between €1.20 billion and €1.26 billion with Q3 sales hitting around the €740 to €800 million mark.

The reported Q2 sales of €148 million, which is 1.4% increase year-over-year with €28 million in online sales, up 59% year-over-year due to sales of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and pre-sales of Just Dance 4.

Just Dance 4 performed "in line" with expectations, while Far Cry 3 has "achieved among the best playtest scores in Ubisoft's history, confirming the game's outstanding quality," according to Ubisoft head Yves Guillemot.

While I wasn't expecting much of FC3 it's good to here it's shaping up well.

Doesn't mean much, to be honest. Remember that 12 year olds in a focus group were the reason why Overstrike turned into Fuse. I'm not kidding.

Far Cry 3 looks to be a great game. I hope it lives up to its hype.

I'm curious. When a game has gone gold, what stage of development is that? Is it when the game itself is finished and nothing else? I've never got a straight answer before.

Hopefully it turns out good.

I actually think this will be the first game in the series that I will end up enjoying. It's an unpopular opinion, but I've always enjoyed the second game over the first, which was so bland and boring.

What Uzi said. I wouldn't call it done because they could be working on a day one patch.

More like Day 1 DLC and intrusive DRM.
