Ubisoft released their sales figures for the third fiscal year (Q3) ending December 31, 2012.
Assassin’s Creed III sold a ‘record-breaking’ 12 million copies, 70% increase over Assassin’s Creed Revelations; Far Cry 3 shipped 4.5 million copies and Just Dance 4 shipped 8 million copies (16% drop compared to Just Dance 3).
Ubisoft sales are up 23% year-on-year at €802 million, while the first nine months of the fiscal year sales total saw a 20% increase to €1,081 million. Online sales (digital game and DLC) saw a huge leap in revenue up 143% to €55.2 million.
“Fiscal 2012-13 is a real turning point for Ubisoft,” stated CEO Yves Guillemot. “Our performance fully validates our long-term choices and the large-scale investments we have been undertaking for several years now, with a sharp ramp-up in games for core gamers and notably our strong comeback into the major segment of shooter games.”
“We have also re-established Far Cry as one of the major pillars of our offering for core gamers, with Far Cry 3 the highest rated shooter of 2012 for Xbox 360 and winning the Gamespot People’s Choice Game of the Year award. We now have greater visibility in terms of future revenue and profitability for this franchise.
“Thanks to these successes and the ongoing solid performance for Just Dance, Ubisoft’s market share has topped 11% for the first time in both the United States and Europe.”
