Ubisoft has released its fiscal results for the third quarter of FY 2013-14. Compared to last year during the same period, Ubisoft reported that they are “down 35.2%.” They pulled in €520 million this year, while last year saw €802 million. The differences comes out to, roughly, $300 million.
In the earnings report, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot pointed towards a few upcoming titles in his pitch for growth in the near future. Here his rundown of the marquee and mention-worthy titles hitting in the next fiscal year.
“Fiscal 2014-15 will see an exceptional games line-up, with the release of five major titles including Just Dance, The Crew and Watch Dogs, which is scheduled for release in the first fiscal quarter.”
As Guillemot noted, Watch_Dogs will hit in the first fiscal quarter of 2014-15. That means we’ll see it sometime between April and June of this year.
What Guillemot did not mention in his list of “major titles” for 2014-15, the time running between April of this year and March of next, is The Division. Game Informer, the initial place where we saw this earnings report, suggests that this missed mention says that The Division has “likely” been delayed.
We’re not sure. It’s odd that Guillemot wouldn’t point towards The Division as one of the major players for this upcoming fiscal year as an opportunity to show investors the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. We can see how that suggests that the game will “likely” be delayed, but we’re not ready to slap it with the release date slip.
What do you think? Does this mean we should rule out The Division in 2014/early 2015? How about Watch_Dogs, will you be giving this game a go as it drops this spring?
