Ubisoft has released its financial report for the quarter; and has noted that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Trials Evolution were the contributing titles to the publisher’s successful quarter.
Ubisoft noted that fans have embraced Ghost Recon: Future Solider helping the title achieve higher-than-expected sales, the newly acquired Trials Evolution set a new record, selling over 100,000 copies in a day on Xbox Live Arcade.
Yves Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer says Ubisoft “reaped the rewards of its pro-active strategy in the Core segment” and enjoyed a strong comeback in this category.
Guillemot boasted on upcoming Ubisoft titles, mentioning that Assassin’s Creed 3 won numerous E3 Game of the Show awards, and also mentioned Far Cry 3 and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist as making a big impression at the event.
“Our success at E3 2012 and the robust momentum of our Online games are positive indicators for achieving our full-year targets for 2012-13.” said Guillemot.
“Our medium-term goal is to capitalize on both the arrival of the new generation of consoles and the ramp-up of the Free-to-Play segment, which represent two major opportunities for us to step up growth and enhance our profitability.
Our capacity to create successful brands and high-quality content, allied with our ongoing progress in the item-based model, multi-screen gaming and the development of Uplay (our online services and distribution platform, which now boasts 35 million members) place us in an ideal position to leverage these two opportunities.”
