Ubisoft has officially announced that in 2017-18 Far Cry, The Crew, & Assassin’s Creed will get new sequels.
The sequels were confirmed during Ubisoft’s financial report today by CEO, Yves Guillemot.
The games will be revealed at this year’s E3.
He said, “The execution of our strategic plan fully paid off in 2016-17, with further very strong growth for the digital segment… and an ever-more recurring profile.”
“With 44 million unique registered players, the size of the Tom Clancy community has increased by almost 150% in less than 18 months.
This impressive performance for a brand created almost 20 years ago clearly illustrates the strong popularity of Ghost Recon Wildlands, Rainbow Six Siege and The Division. Our Live titles continue to beat records for player engagement and have seen a sharp rise in player recurring investment.
Our results for 2016-17 demonstrate the success of our new model, with record high operating income and outperforming the target announced a year ago, and operating margin up for the third consecutive year.”
“Over the last three fiscal years, Ubisoft has – with remarkable success – created numerous new brands and rebooted Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon.
These successes have strengthened our visibility for the coming two fiscal years, with a line-up of releases principally comprised of established franchises. In 2017-18 we will see the exciting returns of Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew and South Park.”
The official respective twitter accounts tweeted the logos for Far Cry 5, the next Assassin’s Creed and The Crew 2.
For the 2016-17 fiscal year ended on March 31, Ubisoft enjoyed a 40.7% jump in Non-IFRS operating income to €237.7 million and a 4.7% increase in sales to €1.46 billion. Fourth quarter sales were also up 3.8% to €648.6 million.
A significant improvement in its digital sales, totaling €729.3 million, which accounted for 50% of the publisher’s total as compared to just 32% of the total from the previous fiscal year.
