Ubisoft to deliver 'best software line-up in history' as sales up to EUR 680 million

After the publisher revealed that full year sales were up 25 percent to EUR 680 million, the CEO, Yves Guillemot, said that 2007-08 will be the best line-up in its history thanks to the launch of:

7 franchises including Brothers in Arms and Splinter Cell
6 new brands including Assassin's Creed and EndWar
4 licensed games including Lost and Surf's Up

He also said that investment in games for the 360, Wii and DS had "paid off" and that they had also successfully broken into the casual gaming market with their "Petz" games and that they intended to pursue an "aggressive growth strategy".

Whether it be Microsoft and Sony or EA and Ubisoft, it's always the consumer that wins in the end, with greater choice and lower prices (eventually anyway).

It's good to see Ubisoft doing so well and giving EA a run for their money. We need companies like this to force other publishers to create better quality games so that they can compete.

With games such as Assassin's Creed, Haze and existing series such as Splinter Cell we really could be in for a bumper 12 months from Ubisoft. I hope they continue to do well, as it'll be good for the industry as a whole and ultimately for us gamers.
