Ubisoft shared its third quarter results for the 2021-22 fiscal year on Thursday, confirming the tentative release slate for the company looking forward. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is being developed by Massive Entertainment, a studio at Ubisoft best known for working on The Division franchise and developing the Snowdrop engine.
Ubisoft also shared that the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) has concluded an investigation into Ubisoft Singapore, finding that salaries are "performance-based" and that workplace issues have been handled appropriately. Ubisoft Singapore, which is the lead developer on Skull and Bones, has been the subject of numerous reports, alleging sexual harassment, unequal pay and more.
In addition to looking forward, Ubisoft noted the strength of several older titles, with Rainbow Six: Siege crossing 80 million players, while the more recent Rainbow Six: Extraction, which launched day and date on Xbox Game Pass in January 2022, reached 5 million players.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which Ubisoft previously claimed to be the second-highest profit generating game in the company's history, is outpacing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, with engagement up 30% life-to-date. The game's final expansion, Dawn of Ragnarok, is slated to launch on March 10, 2022.
