Ubisoft published its financial results report for the third quarter of the current fiscal year, the period from October 1 to December 31, 2020. Revenues amounted to a billion dollars and thus the publisher managed to beat earlier forecasts.
The last three months of last year were the best period in the company's history, not only financially, but also in terms of the number of users playing Ubisoft's games. In turn, in the first nine months of the fiscal year (April 1 - December 31, 2020), revenues amounted to 1.75 billion euro and were 57.2% higher than in the same period of 2019.
In addition to numbers, the document contained a lot of interesting information showing the scale of the company's success. In 2020, Ubisoft sold more copies of games and add-ons than any other publisher. In turn ,Assassin's Creed: Valhalla earnedthe highest revenue in the history of the franchise in the first two months after launch. In addition, Just Dance 2021 is doing much better in the market than Just Dance 2020.
Ubisoft's successes don't just come from new games, however. Older titles also play a key role. In the last quarter of 2020, the company saw big revenue increases from titles like Far Cry 5, Anno 1800, Mario Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Brawlhalla, and The Crew 2. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege, which surpassed the 70 million registered users threshold, was also doing well.
Interestingly, the successful launch of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla must have encouraged fans to dust off earlier installments, as there was a large increase in player activity in Assassin's Creed Origins and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey between October 1 and December 31, 2020
