Ubisoft’s stock is down by 9.12% to $3.29 compared to the previous day’s closing price of $3.62.
Ubisoft, Ubisoft, Ubisoft. First you cancel Blood Dragon 2, then the whole parity thing now releasing a buggy game with lots og MicroDLCtransaactions. Get it together.
hot these news up ..so all people can see Ubicrap's decline ...boycott lame devs until they get a grip and stop stealing us with crappy-quality games and flood of idiotic DLCs
I blame the PUBLISHER's more then the developers for buggy , bad games.
I am so happy to see Ubisoft take a hIt in the only way that will affect them - their pocketbooks
It all started when they made Rayman Legends multiplat and delayed the finished WiiU version. they were pretty clean up until then.
i forgot about that. i was actually going to buy it on the wii u. i ended up not buying any copy
I completely agree and have talked extensively about how terrible Ubisoft really is. I hope this speeds them up on the way to their inevitable demise. Good riddance to them.
The French may have wonderful cuisine and wine with a storied history but man do they suck at making games.
Yep. I completely agree. It's like they make games when they are drunk or high or something. Eidos Montreal creates the epic turd Thief Beenox The Not So Amazing Spiderman Ubisoft Didn't define next gen Wathcdogs, Assassin's Creed just gets worse every year At least there is one well known bright spot, Quantic Dream
Quantic Dream of Beyond 2 SoLame fame? Lol no, try again.
2014 is full of disappointments coming from Ubisoft, lets hope FC4 will be good.
remember kids, buy on the dips!
heh, I was thinking that too. There'll always been investors who's strategies on shares are always reactionary. This would definitely be a perfect time to invest. Ubisoft is not going anywhere and Ubisoft will not be shrinking any time soon.
I actually agree. With the number of new IPs Ubi has launched lately, I think they are a growth stock over the next couple years. Yes they may have quality control issues, but as long as that doesn't impact sales, the market doesn't care.
Eh, but look at the monthly chart. UBSFY has shot up around 25% from its low in mid-October. It's only natural for there to be a pullback, and right now it's still holding on to half those gains. This could be a decent setup for a quick day trade maybe, but I wouldn't buy big unless it dips back to around $3.
It's stock. It goes up and down all day long every day of the year. http://charting.nasdaq.com/...
Yes, but a dip after the launch of a major release is somewhat newsworthy. No doubt, this is a reaction to the whole technical mess scandal that unfolded on twitter.
If the stock was steady and then dipped, maybe. Prior to the games release the stock spiked. After the release it came back down to it's pre-surge levels. The dip has absolutely nothing to do with anything the gamers perceive as a mess. Investors contrary to what many believe don't frequent n4g. The spike and dip are typically day traders playing the short game. Ubi stock is still selling for a dollar more per share than this time last year.
Twitter is not N4G, mate.
It's funny the way the vocal minority of gamers on the internet inflate their self importance. Usually their opinions are nothing more than a blip in the grand scheme of things. These people overreact to everything and they imagine the rest of the world is like them. In reality, Unity is a pretty solid game and the vast majority of people will enjoy it and not think twice about the framerate. What's stupid is, Unity actually runs better than some of the Assassin's Creed games on last gen consoles, which suffered from framerate drops down into the teens AND had screen tearing to boot. Unity runs better than those games, yet supposedly we're supposed to believe that it is a "broken mess" that nobody should buy. Not to mention that on PC I have a solid framerate and haven't experienced any game-breaking bugs or glitches any worse than most open world games. The whole thing is being blown way out of proportion, as usual.
Will raise 16% with Farcry 4.
i predict Ubi stocks to fall further as gamers all over the world refuse to buy AC unity, i personally wont be looking into PS4 version due to inept development leading to Fps issues.....im probably not alone....
See, that's the thing. Ubisoft did the dickhead move by making release embargoes at 12PM on release day. A few days before release, early buyers were reporting so many issues. I decided I'd rather cancel my PS4 version preorder and wait till it's cheaper on PC. Unfortunately, it was too late, and my preorder was already dispatched before I could cancel.
Yeah I am getting GTA V on PS4 instead.
After the whole parity BS I was renting this anyway, but now I'll be waiting a few months until Ubisoft patch it up. There's a tidal wave of games to play in the mean time. No worries for me at all.
Maybe rainbow six and the division can save them.
better not f* up Far Cry
That's what happens when a dev finds their gem and just inflates the shit out of it's releases. AC should have never been an every year release type of game. The series was awesome once and now it's just completely lost most of it's value.
When the next game releases stocks will rise again. Stocks fall on sentiment and it bad at the moment. I'm sure Ubisoft will ride this one out, but if sales are really bad for ACU it may be the end of that game.
It should be the end of broken Assasin Creed games. Hopefully Unity sells badly and Ubisoft will work their butt off to make sure the next Assasins Creed game is a quality title. They need to be punished for this. I'm doing my part by not buying the game hopefully many others do the same.
1,2 and brotherhood. Now its just a guaranteed cash-cow. I'd be happy if every annual release became illegal lol, e.g. fifa...patch in new strips and player transfers' every 6 months as free DLC and make the next installment worth the wait. Take a leaf out of Kojimas book.
Ubisoft is the new EA.
They will bounce back just like Sony stock.
To be continued...
Good, next time don't release a game that consistently runs under 30FPS.
I really hope Ubisoft stock tanks. They deserve to fail after all their bad decisions and lies. Instead of trying to hide the problems by holding back reviews they should have fixed the game. Rewrite the engine to use GPGPU more. That would be the correct thing to do but nobody at Ubisoft has an IQ of over 50 points. Ubisoft went full retard.
It's their fault. They kept releasing stupid statements about parity and not catering to their consumers
Yep and stupid comments like 30fps is better than 60fps because of the 'filmic effect'. They clearly think their audience are a bunch of morons.
I think you fit the definition of moron, you troll thats all I see you do lol
The fall of big gaming corporations is near. The rise of the planet of the indies are coming.
I've bought every Ac game but this will be the first one that I won't touch..AC 4 is the end of the franchise for me..got so burnt out!.
Ubisoft you are stupidly wrong, progress is not like this, have some damn sense.
