Ubisoft shared its Q3 financial results, ending December 31, 2020. The company saw record net bookings of over €1 billion, or $1.2 billion. This growth was largely due to Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which had the biggest launch of any Assassin's Creed game ever. The game also reported record revenue for the Assassin's Creed franchise as a whole.
Other highlights include Rainbow Six Siege, which has grown to over 70 million players, with a free upgrade released for the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5 players, enabling 120 FPS support. Looking ahead, Ubisoft has Far Cry 6 and Rainbow Six Quarantine on its slate, which are both currently scheduled to release at some point past April 2021. Skull and Bones is also in development, with no release date right now.
The company is also working with Disney and Lucasfilm Games on an open-world Star Wars title, which is being developed by Division developer Massive Entertainment and will run on its proprietary Snowdrop engine. This game does not have a release window and is likely years away from release.
