Ubisoft Results: AC3 Sells > 12 Million Units; New AC Coming

Ubisoft's Q3 2012/13 sales figures are now public, showing sales for the fiscal quarter ending December 31st were 23% higher than the same period the previous year, and saying this is above the upper range predicted for the period. Also, GameSpot covers the company's post-results conference call, where they revealed plans for another installment in the Assassin's Creed series, saying this will (naturally) be set during a different era, and is expected for release in their fiscal 2014, which runs from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. Back to their earnings, among other things, Ubisoft attributes the results to strong performance in the core segment:

An outstanding performance by the core gamer segment, driven by very high-quality games. Assassin's Creed® 3 was a record-breaking success with more than 12 million sell-in and digitally distributed units, representing an almost 70% increase over Assassin's Creed® Revelations. Far Cry® 3 was the highest-rated shooter game in 2012 for Xbox360 (with a Metacritic score of 90%), and delivered a much higher-than-expected performance, with already over 4.5 million sell-in and digitally distributed units.

I enjoyed it but there were many frustrating moments. The problem with these games is that so many different teams work on different parts, they will break something, fix it in the next game then another team will break a different part. There's always something annoying going on that detracts from the fun. The tree/rooftop camera aiming was all over the place in this, something that they had finally nailed down in Revelations. Just stuff like that.

I can't say I really care about the conflict, story or characters anymore. I bought it to finish off the trilogy but I don't see myself getting another game, 6+ games on the various platforms was plenty.
