Several months have passed since Ubisoft launched Assassin’s Creed Mirage, a minor title in the Assassin franchise which meant a back to the origins. It is not the first time that the company has talked about this game, but it is known by everyone that the company has enjoyed a great success as to sales and income. However, for the French entity this has meant an important internal change for the future.
Ubisoft recently reported its financial results for the latest quarter. In the call with investors, the company’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, spoke about the income of these previous three months: “Ubisoft has registered a solid third quarter with a net turnover slightly above our expectations,” he explains. The manager then mentions the new stage that is coming within the company.
“This quarter has provided us with positive momentum and marks the beginning of our change towards constant creation and distribution of durable, high-quality games. Our results have been boosted by the launches of Assassin’s Creed: Mirage and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, for the solid track record of The Crew Motorfest and for the strength of our catalogue,” says Guillemot.
Weeks ago we openly told you that Ubisoft’s move with Assassin’s Creed Mirage has turned out very well, since returning to the origins has been a success for your sales. The company specifically mentioned that the last game in the Assassin’s Creed saga had been the best new generation launch of any Ubisoft game in terms of units sold.
They did not offer data, but Tom Henderson, a reliable journalist in terms of Ubisoft information, published an interesting report on its income and the number of players. The insider revealed that the company had entered more than 250 million dollars after the video game has been played for more than 5 million people. These are very good data, but we cannot close the news without forgetting that the creators of Assassin’s Creed Mirage are already immersed in the development of the next video game in the franchise.
