PC is Ubisoft's Second Strongest Platform


Yesterday Ubisoft released their sales results for the first quarter of the 2015-16 fiscal year, revealing that PC is Ubisoft's second most popular platform.

The company reported sales of $106 million dollars, a decrease of 73% from the results from the same time last year. This is still well above Ubisoft's target sales figures for this quarter, with Ubisoft saying their success is driven by the continues strong sales of games like Assassin's Creed: Unity, Watch Dogs and Far Cry 4.

When you break down Ubisoft's numbers you can see that PC accounted for 23% of Ubisoft's sales this quarter, only to be beaten by the PS4 which makes u 27% of the company's sales. This places the PC in a clear number 2 position for the company, placing it well ahead of the Xbox One, which only accounts for a mere 11% of Ubisoft's sales.

With Ubisoft's recent history regarding terrible PC launches and sub-par PC ports the company will really need to change how it looks at PC. With PC being Ubisoft's 2nd biggest source of sales, they will need to do more to please PC gamers in order to continue to make such a high number of sales. 

All of us PC gamers will remember how bad Assassin's Creed Unity ran on PC at launch, even today users still report issues and Multi-GPU configurations are still plagued by graphical glitches and sub par performance.

I thought everyone with a PC was dirty pirate? Black Flag, Unity and Far Cry 4 were really solid games, they seemed to get called out quite a lot over performance issues that just weren't there, for me anyway. They feel well put together and flow nicely, very advanced graphics, would buy again.

they wont take pc seriously, because they managed to treat so many people like dirt and still managed to realize pc as the second best seller..
they will adopt a attitude of. We can keep doing these sh**** little port because they still buy them.
Obviously however if pc was the worst selling platform, they would adopt the attitude of Pc is no good to us so why bother.
its a pretty sad state of affairs really, and i dont like how gaming has turned out, hopefully in years to come the consoles will be less popular "wont sell many"
so they dont port from console to pc and instead port from pc to console..
Provided most people manage to be on a i5 2500k or better cpu, and anything from a 7870 or gtx 680 ish and above around about now. then all they really have to do is spend the money they would have done on a console on a GPU every time a new console is released, and they can keep gaming with the same library they had, and the newer games they buy.
(honestly i dont understand why they dont just make the pc game 1st then port them over to console with lower quality textures and resolutions. to me it seems like the logical thing to do.
Make the game for the best possible system. then just tone it down..

although i do have to wonder how much of the issue is the dev vs the publisher.Quote

Maybe because it affected people with slightly less powerful rigs .Quote

Quite interesting. Hopefully these big publishers will now cater towards the PC more, though I think it is more interesting that the xbone is left in the dust compared to ps4 and pc sales. This generation is becoming very one sided .Quote
