Splinter Cell: Conviction and Assassin's Creed 2 Bound for Mac Within Second-Quarter of 2010
Ubisoft's updated product lineup for its fiscal second-quarter reveals Mac versions of Splinter Cell: Conviction and Assassin's Creed 2 are incoming within the quarter, which ends September 2010. The report lists Assassin's Creed 2 as a EMEA release, which is the designation for titles in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with no listing for North America. As for Splinter Cell, the lising is given no region specification but the July to September time frame gives the grizzled solider just enough time to sneak away from his previous "Microsoft-exclusive" arrangement.
In the finalized report for the 2010-11 fiscal Q1, Ubisoft reveals sales in the quarter were up 94% over the same time period last year. The increase, according to the publisher, was largely due to the strong sales of Splinter Cell: Conviction--which sold 1.9 million units on the Xbox 360--and the "sustained sales" of Just Dance, Assassin's Creed 2 and Avatar. Yes, Avatar.
