Ubisoft Financials Show Strong PC Performance

Ubisoft offers First-Quarter 2019-2020 Sales Results, saying these show higher-than-expected performance. "Our first-quarter net bookings came in well above target, thanks to the very robust performance of our games ‒ notably Rainbow Six Siege and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey ‒ and a very strong increase in player recurring investment for PCs and consoles, led by record-high engagement levels per player," explains co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot. "As well as this very good start to the fiscal year, the positive reception for our games at E3 has confirmed our full-year expectations. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was highly visible among content creators and earned a record-high sentiment score out of all E3 games. Watch Dogs: Legion made a huge impression thanks to its innovative gameplay, putting the franchise back in the spotlight. Our games line-up for fiscal 2019-20 – which also includes Rainbow Six Quarantine and Gods & Monsters – is one of our strongest in the last five years. In the coming years, Ubisoft is ideally positioned to seize the many value creation opportunities that lie ahead and therefore to generate strong revenue growth and further increase its profitability."

PCGamesN notes that the included breakdown of net bookings by platform shows that the PC is now Ubisoft's most profitable platform:

Q1 2019-20 Q1 2018-19
PLAYSTATION®4 31% 38%
XBOX One™ 18% 22%
PC 34% 24%
NINTENDO SWITCH™ 5% 5%
MOBILE 7% 7%
XBOX 360™, PS®3, Wii™, Wii U™ 0% 1%
Others* 5% 3%
TOTAL 100% 100%
* Ancillaries, etc.

Noticed he used "hate." Only someone of that mindset would think in absolutes.

This is mostly due to expanding markets, many of their games had underwhelming sales and reviews, iirc.

I dunno, I feel like on Blues people speak fairly highly of their games. Sure there are criticisms, but it's not nearly as acerbic as those leveled at EA or ActiBlizz games, for instance. Anno, FC: New Dawn, and Div 2 all got pretty good reviews. R6: Siege continues to improve and sell DLC, I'm sure. And AC: Odyssey, widely acclaimed, is still selling strong.

I havent bought a Ubisoft game yet. Well, I did recently. Via Steam. But when I started it, it said the key cant be authenticated, so I contacted their support.
They didnt reply. So I got a refund after 2 weeks of silence.
2 days after that they finally reply and say they cant see a problem...

Fuck Ubisoft. Hard.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

Yeah mtx + always online drm to put a store inside the game to fleece the gullible will definitely drive profits.

Kinda odd that Anno 1800 doesn't even get a mention among the highlighted titles in the press release. Maybe not enough multiplayer, season pass and MTX revenue like the other games to impress the shareholders?

Anyway, I'm sure that it was a major part of the +10% PC revenue increase (from 24% to 34% YoY) since it is the fastest ever selling title in the Anno series.
The PC has historically always had relatively strong quarters at Ubi whenever a new Anno came out so 1800 must have been a major contributing factor.

Maybe is time to stop shitting on PC gamers and whining about piracy.
Start making proper ports.
