The French publisher has enjoyed immense success these past few years.
During their recent quarterly financial briefing, Ubisoft confirmed that they have released eleven games in total this console generation that have managed to sell over 10 million units, which is a tremendous level of commercial success no matter how you cut it.
One of those games is obviously Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which has seen sharp increases over the last year in terms of sell-through, player retention, and daily player engagement, up from Assassin’s Creed Origins – which is another game that has sold over 10 million copies – by 90 per cent, 170 per cent, and 90 per cent respectively. Assassin’s Creed Unity is the third and final game in the series this gen to sell over 10 million units.
The Division 1 and 2 are also 10 million+ sellers, and according to Ubisoft, the latter has seen a “very strong recovery” in Q4 of the fiscal year, most likely thanks to The Warlords of New York. Net bookings from the game over the last 13 months have been comparable to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
The other 10 million+ sellers Ubisoft have released this console generation are Far Cry 4, Far Cry 5, Rainbow Six Siege, Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2, and Ghost Recon Wildlands.
Ubisoft have several major AAA releases lined up for the coming months. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla releases this Holiday season, while Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, and Gods and Monsters are still scheduled to come out before April 2021. Reports have also suggested that Far Cry 6 will also be releasing in that timeframe.
Ubisoft will be hosting a digital E3-style event in July, Ubisoft Forward, where they will be sharing new updates and reveals for their upcoming lineup.
