Ubisoft’s Far Cry 5 has sold incredibly well, the physical version of the game has outperformed their estimates and the digital version sold 2.5M copies during the last five days of March.
“On console, Far Cry 5‘s digital launch was up nearly 500% compared to Far Cry Primal two years ago,” reports Superdata. “This points to not only the underlying health of the Far Cry series, but also to growing digital download rates for triple-A console games in 2018.”
As you might expect, Fortnite topped the digital charts and down at number seven was Sea of Thieves that had over two million players at the time. “However, more than half of these users obtained the game through the limited free trial offered as part of Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass,” add SuperData. “This leaves some unanswered questions concerning the long-term success of the title.”
