Ubisoft Posts Sales Gains, Delays Four Titles

By Carlos Bergfeld, Oct 23, 2007 3:14pm PDT Ubisoft reported its second quarter financial results today, posting a 25.4% increase in revenue to 127 million Euros ($118 million) for the three months ending September 30. Based on the strong second quarter sales, and further gains predicted for the third and fourth fiscal quarters, the company has joined THQ, EA, and Capcom this week in delaying several games into the next fiscal year, which begins on April 1.

The announcement did not specify which games would be delayed, only that three of the four delayed titles are from new brands. The announcement listed the following six franchises as being on track for the current fiscal year: Brothers in Arms, Far Cry, Rayman Raving Rabbids, The Settlers, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell. The new titles still coming this fiscal year are Ubisoft Montreal's Assassin's Creed, Free Radical's Haze, and Ubisoft Shanghai's Tom Clancy's End War.

Saleswise, revenue from Nintendo DS titles brought in the highest percentage of cash to the company during the current quarter, with 23% of sales attributed to the portable system. PlayStation 3 titles came in second at 20%, with PC titles bringing in a close third at 18% of second quarter revenue.
