In 2010, 40 percent of Ubisoft’s revenue came from its casual games lines – and it sees huge growth in the free to play market.

Alain Corre, executive director of Ubisoft, has said the decision to make Splinter Cell Conviction an Xbox 360 console exclusive was a “logical step” for the company.
“It was a decision that we took many years ago,” he told GI. “It’s been an ongoing process.
“For us when we decided to do that many years ago it was a logical step.”
Corre was equally cool when asked whether Ubisoft was worried about limiting sales to just one machine. “But there are also a lot of hardcore gamers who have ownership of both consoles,” he explained.
“And everyone has a PC at home. To a certain extent if players want the next Splinter Cell game they will find a way.”

Speaking to MCV, Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre has confirmed the firm is considering sequels to DarkWorks survival horror I Am Alive – despite the fact the game’s never even been seen in public.
“Yes [we are considering sequels]. Clearly, when we are creating a franchise, it’s a long-term process. We want to keep it and have more iterations, because it’s a big investment at the beginning to launch it,” he said.
“So it’s better when you can advertise and bet on a few franchises in the years to come. We hope it can be another strong franchise for our portfolio, alongside Prince Of Persia or Rayman Rabbids. It’s a new baby for us – and we have big hopes.”

Speaking with GI, Ubisoft executive director Alain Corre has said that he feels that date and location of E3 doesn’t adequately reflect the importance of the event.
“For E3, it’s very important to be there, and to present the games, because even though it’s much, much smaller than it used to be, still the American media are here, all our competitors, so you need be there, to be ready and to share product,” he said.
“It’s one milestone in the communication of your products throughout the year, and it’s important because it’s the ramp-up for Christmas,” he added. “[But] E3 here, mid-July, in the Convention Center in downtown LA – it’s not appropriate I would say.
“What we would like, and we’re discussing that, is to have an E3 back in May with a bigger size,” he went on.
“It shouldn’t be at the same level [as 2006] because it was getting too big, it was a funfair, and the cost was too heavy for everybody.
“It has to be a reasonable size with some reasonable limits as to noise, attendees or whatever, but with a bigger ambition than the one we have this year.”
