Ubi's Sales Beat Expectations
GI.biz reports that Ubisoft’s sales for the first quarter of 2007-08 have gone up 90.5 percent from the same period last year and has raked in 134 million Euro sales, exceeding the forecast of approximately 120 million Euros.
“Ubisoft has made a solid start to the year, and continued to win market share,” said CEO Yves Guillemot. “Momentum was particularly strong during the period for European sales, which climbed 109 per cent thanks to the ramp-up of new-generation consoles and the impact of PS3 game sales, including Rainbow Six Vegas and Oblivion.”
The company hopes to keep sales stable for the second quarter. Ubi has two huge games coming in the fourth quarter – Far Cry 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction.
