Ubisoft announced bad news last week: With worse than expected Ghost Recon results: Breakpoint and The Division 2, it decided to postpone three major releases, including Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters will be available in the fiscal year ending in March 2020
The publisher also confirmed in his financial statements that he will cross all three games and two other unannounced titles that will appear next business year, along with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. 5 will be honored on the next Xbox.
According to Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, all these games are taking advantage of the capabilities and functions of the new generation of consoles, so players will expect better frame rates and shorter loading times. Of course, what is true is another matter, miracles are probably not worth considering, after all, intergenerational titles are not necessarily famous for sweating new machines.
Assassin & # 39; s Creed and Rainbow Six have started the semester
After last week's news, it is not surprising that the publisher gave Assassin & # 39; s Creed: Odyssey and Rainbow Six: Siege as the headline in his business report. The latter set a record monthly active quarterly (by the end of September), reaching a total of 50 million registered players.
The publisher also emphasized that he had fun on the PC, not only thanks to Uplay, and emphasizing the importance of his previously released hits in his portfolio, but also touched the possibilities of Asian and mobile development – like all competing companies today.
The publisher achieved sales of EUR 697.5 million in the first half of the financial year, a decrease of 9.1% year-on-year, but operating profit was even more spectacular, with a decline of 90.1%, of just 9.3 million EUR. The lion's share of revenues came from digital sales, with sales of EUR 537.1 million.
Platform game everywhere!
In October, Ubisoft's Brawlhall game had the ability to collaborate on multiple platforms, and Yves Guillem said their goal was to allow players in all PvP games to coincide in all PvP games. According to CEO, work is ongoing, but apart from Brawlhall, only the Just Dance World Dance Floor mode currently supports this function.
