Announcing its financial results, Ubisoft had a word for the current fiscal year. A year in which big games should look good and good.
Having communicated its financial results during a conference call, Ubisoft took the opportunity to discuss the future of the company via its CEO, Yves Guillemot. And, that’s not all, since we were also able to have some details about the release of next big arrivals.
Avatar, Skull & Bones approaching?
So, based on reports from the company, titles that are likely to be highly anticipated by some may well become available in the current fiscal year, which will end on March 31, 2023. These are, in addition to “free-to-play” based on major licenses,Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, and Skull & Bones.
The financial director, Frederick Duguet, even tightened the possible exit window a bit more by announcing that the games in question would target half of this fiscal year, i.e. after October 1.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, previously announced to be released for 2022should then respect the program and will be very logically available in the last three months of the year.
For the first title mentioned above, we even imagine it arriving in the footsteps of the James Cameron’s second film expected for December. As for Skull & Bones, it would rather be for a date located at all beginning of 2023as expected.
In 2022-23, our objective is to return to significant revenue growth. It will be primarily driven by a diverse lineup of premium games, including Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora™, Mario + Rabbids®: Sparks of Hope and Skull & Bones®, as well as other exciting titles. It will also benefit from our Free-to-Play releases, based in particular on our biggest brands.
