In a Q3 sales release tonight, Ubisoft has confirmed that both will release in the financial year ending March 2010.

“2009-10 looks very promising and our teams are working flat-out to provide gamers with the best the industry has to offer,” said
president Yves Guillemot.

“Our line-up comprises several potential blockbusters with the launch of 7 franchises, including Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon, as well as four license-based games including James Cameron’s Avatar, three new brands and a further-enhanced casual games portfolio.”

The statement said specifically, talking of financial forecasting:

These forecasts have been drawn up taking into account the launch of i) 7 franchise titles, including Assassin’s Creed 2, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon and Anno; ii) 3 new brands including I Am Alive; iii) 4 movie license-based games including James Cameron’s Avatar, a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game and the sequel to Arthur and the Invisibles; and iv) an enriched casual games portfolio which will be focused on the successful Petz, Imagine, My Coach and PlayZoneTM series.
