Ubisoft credited Assassins Creed Odyssey, Rainbow Six Siege, and player recurring investment for the increase.

Everything on that list outside of the unproven Roller Champions sounds good on paper, and as long as Ubisoft keeps older games alive and paces themselves with storied franchises, they'll likely continue down this positive path.

Thanks to a wider install base and a more closed-off ecosystem with comparatively more expensive games, consoles typically lead the sales charts for major publishers.

Ubisoft has released its financial report for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2019 and the company is doing well, to say the least.

While Ubisoft has yet to commit to an exact release date for Rainbow Six Quarantine, the latest update does confirm that the game is one of three titles that Ubisoft is launching by the end of March next year The other two are Gods and Monsters and Watch Dogs Legion, which arrive on February 25 and March 6, respectively. They also say that 34% of that income is from PC, up from 24% from the same period past year.

That music video has been viewed more that 200 million times since its release in May. So I was like: 'F***, he should have never said that, never should have told them'".

With PC over 24% up, it's now ahead of PS4 (31%), Xbox One (18%), Nintendo Switch (5%), and mobile games (7%).

"The 34 p.c was pushed by Anno, which is a PC-specific sport, however even with that launch, we had an excellent efficiency on PC general", Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated throughout an buyers name.

Anno 1800 is available on the Epic Games Store and not Steam, but CFO Frédérick Duguet cited its performance on Ubisoft's own Uplay Store as particularly noteworthy.

"We can't give much information on that because we have been with [Epic] for a short time now", said Guillemot. "So general, if you take Uplay and the Epic Retailer, we're very proud of what we're reaching".
