Ubisoft have been firing from all cylinders now. Assassins Creed Origins doubled Syndicate sales, and now Far Cry 5 doubled Far Cry 4 sales.

 

"Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 5 more than doubled first week sell-through of Far Cry 4, making Far Cry 5 the fastest selling title in the franchise's history. Digital distribution accounted for more than 50 percent of those sales. Far Cry 5 now represents the second biggest launch ever for a Ubisoft game, following only Tom Clancy's The Division, with $310M USD in consumer spending through the first week."

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Digital is still taking over slowly, and there is no denying that. 

Assassins creed syndicate had 15% digital sales first week in 2015. Assassins Creed Origins had 35% digital first week in 2017.
