We also learn that the PS4 dominated sales in the year, bringing in 32% of the revenue, followed by Xbox One, that generated 20% of the company’s revenue. Interestingly in the latest quarter PS4 and PC were on top with 23%, followed by Xbox One with 19%.

North America is still the biggest market for the company, but it’s now followed closely by Europe, with just a 3% difference in revenue between the two regions..

The press release included a statement by President Yves Guillemot about the outlook for Fiscal Year 2015/2016.

“We have another very high-quality line-up for 2015-16, including new Assassin’s Creed and Just Dance® games, the hotly anticipated return of the Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® franchise and the launch of a new high-potential creation, Tom Clancy’s The Division . Thanks to these new releases, very solid back-catalogue and digital revenues, and favorable exchange rates, we expect to see a further improvement in profitability.”

“We intend to continue pursuing our strategy of in-house creation of major franchises for the entertainment industry. Driven by ever more engaged communities, the ramp-up of our high-potential live services and overall growth in the sector, we believe this strategy puts us in a strong position for the foreseeable future”

This confirms a new Assassin’s Creed and Just Dance this year, in which Ubisoft expects an income of at least 200 million euros.
