Ubisoft: 13 million dance titles shipped, revenues up 8.8% to €652 million
Ubisoft has released its Q3 financials for the period ending December 31, and the firm shipped over 13 million dance titles and 7 million units of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations during the period.
The firm estimated its dance titles hold a 70% shared in the market, with Just Dance 3 for Kinect and Wii leading growth for the sector. The firm estimates it holds a 8.6% share of the console games market, making it the third-largest publisher in the US.
Ubisoft’s online division grew 159%, and the growth was attributed to the release of Settlers Online and Howrse. The firm also said Rayman Origins was “profitable,” but failed to provide any figures for the title.
Company revenues for the period were up 8.8% to €652 million ($878.9 million) compared to €600 million year-over-year.
“In fiscal year 2012-2013, we will start to capitalize on the large scale investments we have undertaken more than three years ago,” said CEO Yves Guillemot, adding the firm plans to focus on next-gen opportunities and reestablish its position in the shooter market with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
During the firm’s Q4, it has five titles on the docket for Vita: Asphalt: Injection, Dungeon Hunter: Alliance, Lumines: Electronic Symphony, Michael Jackson: The Experience, and Rayman Origins.
The firm announced a release date of October 30 for Assassin’s Creed III during the call as well, and earlier today it was revealed that Far Cry 3 would see a release in September.
