Far Cry 5 Managed To Sell 5 Million Copies In First Week

We already know that Far Cry 5 has seemingly broken a whole lot of records in the short time that it has been out—Ubisoft already shared an update on its sales performance yesterday, where they confirmed that it had sold more than double what Far Cry 4 sold when it came out in 2014, and that it was Ubisoft’s second biggest launch ever.
According to estimates from The Jefferies Group, Ubisoft sold around five million copies of Far Cry 5 in its first week. By comparison, Far Cry 4 sold eight million copies in its first year on the market, so the latest addition is outpacing it significantly.

We already knew Far Cry 5 was doing well – Ubisoft themselves had said it was their second-biggest launch ever (after The Division), and it stormed to the top of the UK sales chart.

Still, five million copies in a week is extraordinary. Jeffries Group say it took Far Cry 4 a whole year to shift eight million. If you’d like to add to Ubisoft’s successful week, Far Cry 5 is on Steam here.
