Ubisoft Reports First-Half 2018-19 Sales And Earnings Figures

Today, Ubisoft released its sales and earnings figures for the six months ended September 30, 2018. Yves Guillemot, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said "Thanks to the depth and strength of our back catalog and Live operations, our second quarter 2018-19 performance was above target. This momentum drove up our net bookings and financial results for the first half of the fiscal year. 

The release of Assassin's Creed Odyssey was successful. Community reception has been extremely favorable and player engagement rose once again, confirming the franchise's entry among the very best RPGs. Led by an increasingly direct relationship with our player communities as well as very high-quality titles, our first-half 2018-19 performance confirms the potential of Ubisoft's many short- and medium-term growth drivers. The steady rise in player engagement is feeding our digital development and the quality of our games is enabling us to achieve top-rate performance. Our mobile segment is growing significantly and our PC segment is experiencing strong momentum, especially across the whole of Asia.
