Ubisoft has released a press release with its new financial report for the third quarter of its 2014-15 fiscal year. According to the French company, the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, Child of Light, Far Cry 4, Just Dance 2015, The Crew, Trials Fusion and Frontier, Valiant Hearts and Watch Dog have helped its sales figure go higher than the target of approximately €730 million.
What’s more interesting, however, is an image showing Ubisoft’s sales per platform. As we can see, PC sales accounted for only 9% of total units sold. On the other hand, old-gen and current-gen consoles (from both Sony and Microsft) have surpassed that number. And as you’d expect, Nintendo’s consoles are still below the PC.
To be honest, these numbers do not surprise us. Pretty much all of Ubisoft’s latest titles had issues on the PC. Watch_Dogs was downgraded for no apparent reason and suffered from stuttering issues, Far Cry 4 had stuttering issues (that were lessened thanks to its patches) as well as mouse acceleration problems (that was also fixed), and Assassin’s Creed: Unity is still has issues affecting PC gamers.
The big question now is whether Ubisoft feels its worth putting some more effort to its PC games or not. Also, we’d love to see what will happen with Unity (and whether those promised tessellation effects will actually be added to it).
