Earlier today, publisher Ubisoft warned that it wasn't going to have quite the year it was expecting, in part due to big delays, in part due to its efforts on the Nintendo DS and Wii. So it's changing course.
Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft put the blame on Ubisoft's worse than expected 2009-2010 on "considerable contraction in the DS market" and "non-casual Wii titles reporting lower-than-expected sales." Oh, and Avatar sales apparently sucked too, maybe due to the game being released weeks before the billion-dollar blockbuster landing in theaters. Maybe.
So Ubi's going to "continue to refocus our development resources on our major franchises and on the Xbox 360 and PS3, the two consoles which are expected to see sales growth in games for gamers in 2010," according to Yves.
Sounds like Ubisoft still plans on pumping out casual-friendly games for the Wii market, very happy with its success with Just Dance for Nintendo's console.
