Ubisoft today announced better than expected sales figures for their fiscal 2007-2008 year, mostly due to the success of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, which has sold an estimated two million copies. This has helped Ubisoft to project sales of approximately NZ$1,83 billion instead of the previously expected NZ$1.73 billion.
Also contributing to Ubisoft's success are Assassin’s Creed and the Games For Everyone brands which still continue to outperform.
Yves Guillemot, President and CEO of Ubisoft, stated:
"As expected, 2008 is off to be a record year for the videogame market and our games have performed remarkably well in this context. Assassin’s Creed and our Games For Everyone brands continued their strong performance and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 had a better than expected start. One year after the great success of the first title, the second iteration, which provides another unique multi-player experience in the much enjoyed Tom Clancy environment, is ranked among the top games on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in almost every country."
