Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Sells “Better Than Expected,” Hitting 2 Million Copies in 2 Weeks

Ubisoft announced today that its recently released sequel, Rainbow Six Vegas 2, has sold through two million copies. The company noted that the sales numbers are “better than expected.” Additionally, Ubi says that games like Assassin’s Creed and its Games For Everyone brand “continue to outperform.”

As a result of better-than-expected sales for Vegas 2, the French publisher increased its projected Net fiscal guidance for the 2007-2008 year. Originally projected to be $1.3 billion, the company has increased that amount to $1.54 billion.

“As expected, 2008 is off to be a record year for the videogame market and our games have performed remarkably well in this context. Assassin’s Creed and our Games For Everyone brands continued their strong performance and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 had a better than expected start. One year after the great success of the first title, the second iteration, which provides another unique multi-player experience in the much enjoyed Tom Clancy environment, is ranked among the top games on Xbox360 and PlayStation 3 in almost every country,” said Yves Guillemot, the president and CEO of Ubisoft.
