Ubisoft announced some impressive statistics regarding several of the publisher’s properties during its recent earnings presentation, including very promising player-base numbers for Tom Clancy’s The Division.
Give that The Division broke sales records when it launched back in early March, it’s unsurprising to hear it listed at the forefront of the publisher’s accomplishments. There are currently over 9.5 million registered users in the post-pandemic shooter, and active players spend an average of around three hours a day playing the game.
Even less critically-acclaimed Ubisoft titles are outperforming expectations. Per the publisher’s comments, Far Cry Primal had the “best performance ever for a game released in the month of February.” Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has “doubled its audience” in 2016, likely helped along by a stream of free DLC.
Ubisoft’s presentation included some of the company’s revenue figures for its fourth-quarter and full-year performance. Full-year sales are down 4.8 percent from last year, landing at ?1.4 billion ($1.6 billion), revenue from the fourth quarter is up 267.7 percent from the same period last year at ?625 million, and digital sales brought in ?446.7 million this year, a 16.7 percent increase year-on-year.
