Ubisoft has estimated that Assassin's Creed 3 has sold over 3.5 million units in its first week out, more than doubling that of Assassin's Creed: Revelations during the same time frame last year.

'America, f*** yeah!'

Unfortunately for the publisher, these figures aren't included in its recent financial report for the six month period ending on 30th September, which ended in a €32.3 million loss. This is par for the course during the spring/summer seasons as all the big money makers come out in Q4 - or get delayed into Q1.

Looking ahead, the developer has several big releases during this time frame. In addition to the aforementioned Assassin's Creed 3, there's Far Cry 3 - which "has achieved among the best playtest scores in Ubisoft's history," according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot - as well as Wii U launch titles Rayman Legends and ZombieU.

"Following on from the steady advances we have made over the last 24 months, the Company expects to achieve a record second-half performance," said Guillemot.

He also noted its full year 2012-2013 estimate for sales has risen to €1200 - €1260 million, compared with the previously announced target of €1160 - €1200 million, and its operating income target has increased from €70 - €90 million to €70 - €100 million.
