Forums - Gaming Discussion - Far Cry 5 is Ubisoft Second Biggest Luanch. 50% of The Sales Were Digital.

I'm shocked so many of the copies sold at luanch are digital. Do people really find it that convenient with games that big, or does this game have massive PC sales?

Convenience is a big factor. Far Cry is very popular on PC so there is that. Still AC Origins had 35% digital sales and its a more console focused series. Horizon has sold 7.6 million by March and 4.7 million at retail so that game has 35% sales digital and it doesn't have a PC version to boost its digital numbers. Digital is growing more popular.

eh not really. It's pretty much just as popular as any other big 3rd party multiplat franchise.
You might confuse it because the first Far Cry was PC exclusive, but since Ubisoft took over Crytek's work, the franchise went in a completely different direction.
AC is indeed more console focussed, but that's because Ubisoft likes to release the PC version 6 months later.



More and more games are getting higher and higher digital sales. No wonder gamestop is on a downward spiral. Will defintely go the way of Toys R Us within the next 3 years.

I thought it had to do more with the antagonists.



Intenet is getting faster and faster, no brainer digital sales will take over physical in the future. When you can download shitbytes of data in minutes, why bother buying physical?

I'm stuck to the past myself.
