Yesterday, Ubisoft revealed its sales details during a conference call which showed a strong performance in last three month of 2014. The company managed to make $924 million in revenue in the last quarter.
Credit of Ubisoft’s performance goes to strong sales of Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Far Cry 4. Compared to the same period of 2013, Ubisoft saw a 56 percent increase in overall sales. Revenues for the same quarter of 2013 stood at $593 million.
In the midst of these impressive figures, Ubisoft re-confirmed a new Assassin’s Creed, The Division and Rainbow Six: Siege for 2015. If the above mentioned figures are any indication, 2015 will be an even bigger year for Ubisoft.
Moreover, the company seems to have a lot of faith in The Division:
The strong install base” for the Xbox One and PS4 “should offer a nice tail-wind, and we expect software growth to come back,” said CEO Yves Guillemot, adding that the company is benefiting from its early investment in new IP for the current-gen systems. The company hopes to continue benefiting in the next year “with the introduction of The Division.
However, If they wish to “benefit” from The Division or Assassin’s Creed 2015, they would have to make sure they properly QA their games before release. Because even though Assassin’s Creed: Unity sold well, major part of the shipment was sold due to hype, the game was in no shape to be released.
Surely, fans would be cautions and won’t fall for hype this time around.
Do you think Ubisoft will ever stop making Assassin’s Creed Games? Or would you like to see a new installment every year?
