Thanks to the success of Assassin’s Creed 3, it’s biggest title in history, and critically acclaimed FPS Far Cry 3, Ubisoft has reported increased sales by 23 percent for €802 million ($1 billion/£684 million) in revenue for the third quarter.

While Assassin’s Creed 3 sold a staggering 12 million copies, Far Cry 3 sold about 4.5 million copies. Both sales totals include digital download and physical retail units.

CEO Yves Guillemot stated that, “Fiscal 2012-13 is a real turning point for Ubisoft. Our performance fully validates our long-term choices and the large-scale investments we have been undertaking for several years now, with a sharp ramp-up in games for core gamers and notably our strong comeback into the major segment of shooter games.”

Guillemot claims the company now holds a market share in the US and Europe to the tune of 11 percent. In light of its success, Ubisoft now expects about €1.2 billion for the full year along with profits in excess of €90-100 million ($133 million/ £85.3 million).

Guilletmot also stated that Ubisoft will continue its dominance and gain ground in new markets thanks to “an even stronger offer for core gamers and continued robust momentum for free-to-play games and digital distribution”.
