He added that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon helped spur sales of the full Far Cry 3 game, most notably so on PC.

Guillemot also addressed Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, another downloadable game based on a major retail franchise from Ubisoft. He did not give a specific sales figure for the game, but said he was "very happy" with its performance.

Both games were released in May. The performance of both Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger gives Ubisoft the chance to explore furthering its investment in downloadable brand extensions in the future, Guillemot said.
