You already know the procedure: no sooner has a financial quarter ended than companies publish their annual reports to celebrate successes, admit disappointments and formulate the next goals and projects. So recently also happened at Ubisoft, here's the official report. However, we have also prepared the most important for you below.
- According to Ubisoft, The Division 2 (buy now €12.98 ) sold more copies on PC and console through June (in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America, Latin America and Japan) than any other game in 2019.Rainbow Six Siege has worked its way into the top 10 best-selling games over the past five years.Assassin's Creed Odyssey is performing even better than Assassin's Creed Origins after the first quarter.The majority of net revenue came from PC in Q1 2019 at 34 percent, followed by PS4 at 31 percent and Xbox One at 18 percent. In Q1 2018, the PS4 was still ahead with 38 percent (PC only 24 percent, Xbox One 22 percent).
Yves Guillemot, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Ubisoft, sounds very pleased:
"Our first quarter net bookings were well above target thanks to the very robust performance of our games - particularly Rainbow Six Siege and Assassins Creed Odyssey, as well as a very strong increase in recurring player investment on PC and consoles, led by record engagement per player. In addition to this very strong start to the fiscal year, the positive reception of our games at E3 has confirmed our expectations for the full year."
And what does the near future hold for Q2? Between now and September 2019, we can look forward to DLCs for Anno 1800, Trials Rising, as well as Assassins Creed Odyssey; the launch of new seasons of For Honor and Rainbow Six Siege; and the release of Growtopia on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch, as well as the release of The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot on iOS and Android
