Splinter Cell Blacklist sells 2m copies, Rayman Legends nears 1m

Ubisoft has announced sales numbers for a pair of under-performing titles, revealing Splinter Cell: Blacklist has moved 2m units and Rayman Legends is closing in on 1m copies sold.

Games Industry reports the Ubisoft provided the figures following its recent call to investors, where the publisher had warned investors that both titles fell short of initial sales expectations.

The disappointing retail performances come as a bit of a surprise, as critical reception for both titles were almost entirely positive. Rayman Legends in particular scored very high marks with reviewers, boasting a 91 on score aggregation site Metacritic.

It wasn’t all bad news, as the company confirmed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s 10m sales target for the year based on the game’s performance thus far.

Ubisoft published its six month financial results yesterday, and stated in the aforementioned investors call that the firm expects the PS4 and Xbox One systems to combine for 10m sales by the end of March.
