Publish date:

Along with its financial results and confirmation of a new outing for Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft has also confirmed that its next-gen sandbox shooter Far Cry has now sold 2.9m copies worldwide.

In addition, Shaun White Snowboarding has sold 2.3m copies and can claim the crown of being the second best-selling sports titles in North America in 2008.

The latest iteration of the firm's Prince of Persia franchise has also sold well, notching 2.2m sales – though Ubisoft did admit that this was slightly below its expectations.
