Ubisoft offers sales figures for their fiscal Q1 2014-2015, an unusual move
separate from normal quarterly financial reporting, which is still about a month
off based on their typical timing. This may have to do with the impressive
growth represented by the news:
Sales for the first quarter of
fiscal-year 2014-15 came to €360 million, up 374 percent (or 386 percent at
constant exchange rates) compared with the €76 million recorded for
first-quarter fiscal-year 2013-14.
The first quarter sales figure was higher than the target of approximately €310
million announced when Ubisoft released its full-year 2013-14 results. This
- The success of Watch Dogs, which broke Ubisoft’s
and industry’s sales record for, respectively, the launch of a new game and
of a new brand, with over 8 million sell-in units.
- Strong growth reported in the digital segment,
with sales up 149 percent to €84 million, driven by Watch Dogs, the success
of Ubisoft’s Free-to-Play mobile games and the releases of Trials Fusion,
Child of Light and Valiant Hearts The Great War.
