PC has more "Net Bookings"/Sales than PS4 last quarter says Ubisoft

In Q4 2018/19, PC accounted for a higher percentage of "net bookings" (sales), than both PS4 and Xbox One, rising to account for 27% of net booking/sales over the full fiscal year. 

When compared to 2017/18, PC is up 79%, and UPlay is up 150%, generating 27% of the company's revenue when compared to 18% the previous year. PC is a growing business for Ubisoft, and right now it is earning more money than Sony's PlayStation 4. 

With the release of The Division 2, Ubisoft has seen UPlay sales for the franchise increase by a factor of 10x when compared to the series' previous outing. This is due to Ubisoft's partnership with Epic Games, which prevented the game's release on Steam, moving PC gamers to alternative storefronts where the publisher could benefit from an increased revenue share. High Season pass sales have also contributed to Ubisoft's sales growth on both PC and consoles.

In Ubisoft's last quarter, PC created the largest slice of the company's revenue, showcasing the importance of the platform in the eyes of the publisher. This is great news for PC gamers, as this will send a clear message to the company; PC matters.

I am happy for Ubisoft. They started getting more serious and tried turning the company around as it was basically EA's little brother.

Now they are taking PC more seriously and games in general. Higher quality games, launches, not ripping people off with p2w/MT, etc. Outside a couple of negative issues in the last few years, they have done a great job in my opinion.

I also think they were kinda forced to do this. With Vivendi trying to buy them out for so long they HAD to make more money to be able from being bought out. They got past that and now they are benefitting from that hard work.

Now let's hope they don't screw it up. Never know in this day and age with game companies.Quote

Completely agree mate,

Ubisoft were well on the path to becoming one of the most hated publishers with their releases and slow fixes. However, it does feel like there's been a new way of thinking in recent times.

You only need to look at games like the division 2 and the willingness to hold back updates when the community wasn't happy to get the feeling they are being a bit more considerate of not only PC gamers but the gaming community as a whole. I hope they keep this courseQuote

I absolutely love their uplay currency concept.

Running ingame challenges gives you currency which you can then use for discounts on their store. Finally these useless fluff challenges that served no purpose except epeen has a good use for doing them.

I bought Div2 season pass with a 20% discount using those coins. Ubisoft really have spun their rep. I put them on the other end of the scale of EA these days.

Agree on Div2 example. When they heard the community complaints about raising gear score, they scrapped it. When they heard about how we dislike the exotics damage, they raised them. Ok, I know this is Massive at work not ubisoft, but still their way forward is fantastic now.Quote
