Ubisoft announced today that its upcoming open-world action game Far Cry 4 has officially gone gold, meaning development on the game has finished ahead of its November release.

In a statement on the Ubisoft Blog, marketing executive Tony Key said the critical and commercial success of 2012’s Far Cry 3 means that Far Cry is now one of Ubisoft’s marquee brands, though Assassin’s Creed still appears to be the overall breadwinner of the bunch.
Far Cry 3 has shipped more than 10 million copies, 6 million of which came in the first year, Ubisoft revealed today during a financial call. Ubisoft is expecting bigger things from Far Cry 4, saying today that it expects the game to ship more than 6 million copies during its first year alone.
