Splinter Cell & Rayman Fiscally Disappointing


Ubisoft's Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rayman Legends, both released this year, did not perform too well sales wise, as revealed by France based publisher during an investors conference call today.

Ubi rep commented on how badly both titles performed financially. "As we have said we have experienced lower sales than we anticipated when we gave our targets," Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez admits. "Already released games such as Splinter Cell, Rayman and others."

Meanwhile, the recent delay of triple-A titles Watch Dogs and The Crew will make a significant impact on the company's fiscal predictions for this year. Ubisoft projected to make $1.94 billion by the end of fiscal year in April 2014. Now that figure has been reduced to $1.38 billion.

I'm gutted.

This shit again? These people need to learn from Square Enix's mistakes. They need to crack down on game budgets or they'll go out of business. They need to stop listening to the sales projections and start making games people care about.

Watch Dogs is great and all, but did you see how nervous they got around the GTA V launch? I would bet it was pushed back simply because the suits lost heart that they could compete with GTA V at all.

At the end of the day, nice as Watch Dogs looks, it can't beat GTA at it's own game.

Hey Ubisoft, how about resurrecting an old franchise and NOT fucking it up like Eidos likes to do these days.

maybe advertise your games more. i have seen zero advertising for these games, nothing on tv, newspapers, buses, trains or billboards.
