May 15, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Ubisoft has revealed their financials for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 2014, which includes sales of €1.01 billion ($1.38 billion), a drop of 19.9% when compared to last year.

Offering up his comments on the results, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said:

Although Ubisoft did not reach the targets announced a year ago for 2013-14, we did see a number of significant achievements during the period. Above all, we consistently achieved high quality across our games, notably for Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag – the best-rated game of the Christmas season for PS4 and Xbox One – and for South Park: The Stick of Truth, which delivered a solid sales performance for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Ubisoft then highlighted various sales performances during the fiscal year:

  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag sold-in (retail and digital) more than 11 million units.
  • The fourth quarter of the fiscal year was up thanks to South Park: The Stick of Truth, which had a “solid performance” and saw better than expected digital sales.
  • Just Dance 2014 sold-in over 6 million units.
  • Far Cry 3 moved nearly 3 million copies through retail and digital.

Looking ahead at this current fiscal year, Guillemot highlight some of their big titles, which doesn’t include a last-gen Assassin’s Creed:

Combined with the fast uptake of new-generation consoles and strong growth in the online market, our ambitious games line-up should land three of our titles in the top 10 best-selling games of the year for consoles and PC, and lead us to record a sharp rise in our digital sales.

The year’s performance will be led by five games – Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, Just Dance, The Crew, and Watch Dogs. Watch Dogs’ pre-orders are at record levels and it is perfectly positioned to become the industry’s most successful new IP in history.
