Ubisoft has posted its results for Q4 and the end of the fiscal year, as well as providing a look ahead into the next financial year.

Ubisoft confirmed that 11 games this console generation have sold over 10 million copies: Assassin's Creed Unity, Assassin's Creed Origins, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, The Division, The Division 2, Far Cry 4, Far Cry 5, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, Rainbow Six Siege, Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2. The performance of Assassin's Creed Odyssey is especially notable, with sell-through and player engagement up 90% compared to Assassin's Creed Origins.

Looking forward, Ubisoft's lineup for the next financial year, ending March 31, 2021, includes five major titles: Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Rainbow Six Quarantine, Gods & Monsters and one unnannounced AAA game. Assassin's Creed Valhalla attracted particularly strong attention, gathering over 100 million views of the official trailer (across multiple channels) in 10 days. Meanwhile, Rainbow Six Siege crossed 60 million players.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot noted that one of these games could be delayed beyond April 2021 depending on the repercussions of the global pandemic.

Ubisoft is planning a digital showcase called Ubisoft Forward on July 12, which will no doubt shed more light on what games fans will be playing in the coming months, as well as providing extended looks and release dates for already-announced games.

  • Ubisoft's Q4 revenue results by platform:
    PS4 26%
    Xbox One 14%
    PC 26%
    Switch 10%
    Mobile 16%
    Other 8%
  • Considering Xbox is probably less than half the PS4 base, thats really not bad and actually shows more sales in Xbox users.
  • Tbh it's normally the lesser selling console that has the better attachment rate. If you look at the best selling consoles they sell more as this is where the casuals go but they only tend to buy/play the same games like Minecraft, cod, fifa, fortnight ect. I often find the console war on pure sales funny because as shown here dose not mean the attachment rate is higher on game sales. Interesting to see pc as high as ps4 though.
