Ubisoft! Ubisoft! Ubisoft!

Ubisoft released its First Quarter Reports (2008-09) today. Sales for the company are up 25.8%. Titles launched in 2007-08, such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2, Assassin’s Creed and Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, are mainly what brought about these numbers. While this may seem like boring news to non-business people, the company did mention some titles that will be released during the second quarter of 2008-09. The second fiscal quarter will see the following main releases: Brothers in Arms Hell’s Highway and Soul Calibur IV (with Darth Vader and Yoda). I am sure everyone knew this already anyway.

Avid gamers can also look forward to the Ubisoft DS title “My SAT Coach”. I personally wish there was a gameboy game when I was younger that mixed the fun of gaming with the intelligence and vest of the SAT’s.

In other Ubisoft news the company opened up two new, randomly placed, studios. One in Kiev, no clue where that is, and Sao Paolo. Fascinating.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Trailer

I honestly never played the first one. Thrasher loved it and I finally did buy it for the Xbox. However, by then I had an Xbox 360 and the game wasn’t backwards compatible with it. I was too lazy to get the Xbox out of it’s box, so that was the end of that. Anyway, Ubisoft has officially announced the sequel for the Xbox 360 and PS3, so I’ll probably pick up the sequel.

Ubisoft has released their sales figures for Assassin’s Creed and for it’s first week the game has sold over one million units world wide! Also, Assassin’s Creed was the third best selling Xbox 360 game ever in a given week. The 360 version accounted for 67% of the sales.

Well done Ubisoft, well done.
