Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon could be turned into a retail release

Ubisoft CEO confirms Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has sold over a million units and may be turned into a retail release.

Blood Dragon was released as a downloadable earlier this year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, and has sold more than a million copies. In an interview with Game Informer, Guillemot says its success helps justify the company's push into digital software.

"What's changing is that there's more digital sales," Guillemot said. "So it means that you can come up with games that are smaller in size but bigger in innovation, because you don't target a huge group--you target specific audiences."

Guillemot later confirmed that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon had broken a million in sales, and that "maybe we'll go to retail at one point so we'll achieve a bit more."

In May, voice actor Michael Biehn said that the game's creative director was hopeful for a sequel to the game.
