Far Cry 5 sales are off to a flying start

Ubisoft must be happy with the number of Far Cry 5 sales. It was only released on March 27 and in three days has managed to sell 340,000 copies on Steam.

Given that Far Cry 5 is available on Steam and UPlay, PS4 and Xbox One, the number of copies sold is obviously going to be much higher. The number sold on Steam is a good indication of how well it’s selling overall.
