Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon has sold more than 1 million copies and may be released in a boxed retail format, according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.
Released earlier this year as a downloadable title for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Blood Dragon has encouraged Ubisoft to keep pursuing its "mini-AAA" titles, which also includes the likes of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.
"What's changing is that there's more digital sales," Guillemot told Game Informer when asked about the company's digital efforts. "So it means that you can come up with games that are smaller in size but bigger in innovation, because you don't target a huge group - you target specific audiences."
When asked how successful those digital titles have been, Guillemot said Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has sold over a million units, and that "maybe we'll go to retail at one point so we'll achieve a bit more."
According to Guillemot, Ubisoft will continue releasing titles for current generation consoles for at least "the next two Christmases", claiming that after that the publisher's focus will be on next-gen titles.
Blood Dragon voice actor Michael Biehn revealed in May that the game's Creative Director, Dean Evans, was pushing to turn the game into a series.
This followed widespread critical acclaim for the title, with CVG's Ben Griffin describing it as "a standalone sandbox packing nostalgic action thrills alongside contemporary gaming commentary".
