Ubisoft has announced that sales for the 12 month period ending March 31, 2008 reached €928 million thanks to amazing success of Assassin's Creed, its Games for Everyone titles and the recently released Rainbow Six Vegas 2.
Assassin's Creed has now sold over six million units in to retail and the recent release of PC and Nintendo DS versions, along with more television advertising, should help the title move towards the seven million figure.
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 which hit stores during the publisher's fourth quarter is also performing well with sales already nearing two million units.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said: "2007-08 was a remarkable year for Ubisoft, underpinned by three strategic achievements:
"Continued strengthening of existing franchises such as Rainbow Six, Rayman, The Settlers and Ghost Recon which recorded excellent sales levels;
"The sharp ramp-up of the Games For Everyone casual range, whose sales figures tripled over the year;
"A steady output of new releases with Assassin's Creed and Imagine that have performed exceptionally well."
Guillemot also noted that the publisher's line-up for the current year is "particularly strong, with no fewer than seven existing franchises, five new releases and new brands in the casual segment."
