The Division Delayed to 2016 and More From Ubisoft


Ubisoft has released their Fiscal Year 2015 Earning Report which details their upcoming games, recent success, and future plans.

First up is the success of open world games. Ubisoft has been on a mission to expand their franchises to match the power of next gen. Out of the top 10 Best Selling Games of 2014, five were open world games: GTA V, Destiny, Watch Dogs, AC Unity + Rogue, and Far Cry 4 (Ubisoft is combining the Unity and Rogue sales). This is a 14% increase in the total share of the market compared to 2008.

Ubisoft notes that their "key drivers" are the newly announced Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Rainbow Six Siege, Just Dance, The Division, and one other unannounced AAA title. It's worth noting that their new releases are down YOY, digital accounts for ~30% of total revenue, and Xbox One/PS4 were 52% of FY15 revenues.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate:
