PC Is The Third Most Profitable Platform For Ubisoft In Q2 2016

Ubisoft has just revealed its latest financial results and according to them, the PC platform is the third most profitable platform for the French publisher. The first one is PS4, followed by “Other” platforms (mainly mobile devices) and then we find the PC. The PC has managed to surpass all old-gen consoles, as well as Microsoft’s Xbox One.

Ubisoft results

Back in October, Ubisoft claimed that PC gamers are important to it and that it’s committed to addressing their needs.

PC gamers are important to Ubisoft, and we’re committed to better understanding and addressing their needs and to continually improving our relationship with them.” said Ubisoft consumer and marketing director Sandrine Caloiaro.

It’s interesting comparing Ubisoft’s Q2 and Q1 2016 results. In the previous quarter, PC was the second most profitable platform for Ubisoft. However, mobile devices have risen and managed to surpass the PC.

PS4 and Xbox One have managed to retain their sales, however the PC dropped from 23% to 17%. That’s a noticeable decrease, however we do have to note that there weren’t many Ubisoft PC titles in Q2 2016.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
