Ubisoft "disappointed" with their year so far

TVGB: ""You can see we are disappointed by this first half of the year," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in conclusion of its Q1 earnings conference call today. But despite the rough start, he stays hopeful that the heavy hitters arriving later in the fiscal year will turn things around. "We think that the games that we will have in the second half will be of very high quality, so this year… it's not finished. We still have nine months to go and we hope we can come with games that will make a big impact on the videogame market this year and change those numbers to better numbers if they perform better than what we expect.""

Well there is a lot of companies that are disappointed with their year so far. Some companies disappointed themselves right out of business. No business is safe when the economy turns sour like it has.

"Ubisoft disappointed with their year so far"

...they won't be after Assassin's Creed 2 sells 5 million before the end of this year. The preorders are already fully booked allover the place.


Assassins Creed 2
Uncharted 2

As a gamer, i'm so fu***ing happiiii!!!

AAACE53827d ago

Well, they haven't released anything worthwhile since last year, and they probably won't release anything good until xmas! So yeah! I would imagine they aren't satisfied.

Hopefully the New Rainbow 6 and Ghost Recon make it out this year along with Assassins creed!

badz1493827d ago

they have no big hit yet this year!

poindat3827d ago

They should double release rate of the Imagine games (or should I say gamez). That would be sure to help!


BadKarmaSutra963827d ago

I'd love it if they had more GRAW2 DLC missions. I'd be all over that.

BOOOO.... Ubisoft running from Modern warefare 2 .

Dead_Cell3827d ago

You're not going to let this go until you get Splinter Cell,are you?

cmrbe3827d ago

Put it this way. Delay means more spit polish means better game for your 60 bucks.

Besides. Its not like you don't have any other great games this year. There are still too many of them.

Im dissapointed in Ubisoft for not releasing SplinterCell this year.
That was my most Anticipated game this year for the xbox.

I guess I'll have to play Uncharted 2 @ my Friend's house.

Mo0eY3827d ago

Even the fanboys give in to the graphical prowess that Uncharted 2 possesses.

fuckoffodion3827d ago

earlier today, you said the PS3 will be irrelevant by September. hmmm...

trancefreak3827d ago

interrergator3827d ago

Gamer_Politics3827d ago

Ubisoft has disappointed alot of gamers this year

interrergator3827d ago

the only game we have from them is assassains creed 2

sunil3827d ago

I am not sure how AC 2 is going to do... The game didn't have (IMO) much competition in 2007 + it was a new IP and it looked great...

now we have games which look about the same or better and not that repetitive as AC. Sure they were going to make it exciting by adding more interesting subgames, but thinking back to AC1 I do not see how they can eliminate the repetitive gameplay.

I for one am going to wait for reviews before any purchase/rent decision.
