Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Ubisoft’s blissful union of ’80s sci-fi action and a Lite-Brite, has cleared 500,000 combined platform sales, reports Joystiq. Speaking to GamesIndustry International, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated he was “very happy” with Blood Dragon‘s performance. The game’s success, along with their other downloadable darling, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, has afforded Ubisoft the opportunity to continue looking into extending their brands in the downloadable space.
