US sales: Ghost Recon Future Soldier outsold all across May and June

Ubisoft pleased with better-than-expected sales

Ubisoft enjoyed a significant boost in sales revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2012-13 thanks in part to Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.


The Paris based publisher has posted sales of €131 million for the quarter, up 27.2 percent over the €103 million posted during the same period the year before.

In its financial release, the firm put its good fortunes down to "higher-than-expected sales" of the Ghost Recon title, which was the best selling game in the US across May and June.

The game did not top the charts in any individual month, a Ubisoft spokesperson told CVG. However, combined May and June sales were better than that of any other game.

Ubi CEO Yves Guillemot' outlook for the future is positive after a strong (arguably the strongest of all) E3 presence. "With 335 nominations and more than 160 awards at E3 2012, Ubisoft reaped the rewards of its pro-active strategy in the Core segment and demonstrated its strong comeback in this category. Assassin's Creed 3 won numerous Game of the Show awards, Far Cry 3 and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist made a big impression at the event, and our two new brands Watchdogs and ZombiU set social networks alight," he said.

"Our success at E3 2012 and the robust momentum of our Online games are positive indicators for achieving our full-year targets for 2012-13."
