Far Cry 5 is selling like there’s no tomorrow

Ubisoft’s Peaches 2018 campaign simulator is apparently kind of a big deal, breaking sales records for the franchise and establishing a new record for ambushes by skunks.

According to the press stuff, Far Cry 5 “more than doubled” the first-week sales of Far Cry 4, making it one of the publisher’s most successful launches, second only to The Division. In a sign of the (end) times, perhaps, more than half of those sales were digital, so that’s also interesting.

“I’m proud that the culmination of years of passionate work from the team is paying off, and that Far Cry 5’s experience resonates with so many people,” says the game’s executive producer Dan Hay. “We are humbled by players’ reception of Far Cry 5 and fired up to keep growing and supporting the Far Cry community in the months and years to come.”

To commemorate the event, Ubisoft also dropped a nice infographic so you can compare your shovel stats with everybody else’s. It’s the important things, you know.
