Assassin’s Creed Unity Causes 9.2% Drop in Ubisoft Stock
Assassin’s Creed Unity was unleashed onto the markets recently. While it has affected the wallets of many among us, it also happens to have affected the stocks of Ubisoft.
Guess what, it is a negative effect that has taken down the developer’s stocks b 9.2 percent!
Let me slow down a bit, it is a fact that the game has received some negative remarks that we can’t simply ignore. There are some issues with the game and then there is the Uplay hammer that hurts the PC players too.
Alright it is understandable that if a game is not good, and it also happens to be the most anticipated game of the period from a said development studio, their stocks would take a dent.
However, didn’t any one notice that the Xbox One version has an aggregate review score of 76 on Metacritic while the PlayStation 4 has an aggregate score of 80 which, in all honesty, doesn’t look bad. Okay the game didn’t hit 90 but come on, the investors got scared of that?.
You can check out the review roundup for the game here, and do tell us what you think about the state of the game right now. Do you think that Ubisoft will pull it out of the hot waters along with their own stocks?
Assassin’s Creed Unity was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One recently. The North American release was on November 11, 2014 while the Australian and European Union region has received the game today i.e. November 13, 2014.
