Ubisoft expects to continue selling well on the console throughout the holiday season.
Ubisoft has been happy with their game sales on the Nintendo Switch. In fact, Switch sales accounted for 19 % of total game revenue for Ubisoft according to the company’s latest financial report. Recently, during Ubisoft’s quarterly conference call for investors and analysts, the company’s Chief Executive Officer Yves Guillemot revealed that they are “very happy” with the sales on the Nintendo Switch. To put things in perspective, the revenue from Xbox games only amounted to a total of 20% of total game revenue. For a relatively new console like the Switch then, sales are fast increasing.
The main sources of game revenue were games such as Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and Rayman Legends. Just Dance 17 has also been profitable for Ubisoft. Additionally, the game has sold more copies on the Nintendo Switch than anywhere else. At this point, Ubisoft is confident that their games will continue selling well for the Switch throughout the holiday season and this should see a significant increase in game revenue. They have also stated that they plan to invest in more games for the Switch but we have no details about what will be coming.
Ubisoft is also particularly excited for the release of Just Dance 18 on the console and believes that it will sell really well on this console just like its predecessor did. All in all, it is nice to see more third-party developers investing in bringing over games to the Nintendo Switch.
