- Ubisoft Earns Strong Revenue From Nintendo Switch Games Sales
- Nintendo Switch Nearly Even With Xbox One in Ubisoft Sales
Ubisoft released some big game titles this year. E3 event saw the launch of Assassin’s Creed Origins and Far Cry 5. The games came out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC.
One of the gaming consoles missing from the top game lineup was Nintendo Switch. It was curious that the bestselling gaming console of the year was not supporting Ubisoft’s top tier games.
Considering that Nintendo Switch is considerably new, Ubisoft might be justified for testing the waters first. They released Just Dance 2017 Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition and the Nintendo cross-over Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle instead.
Any Ubisoft fan will know that these are not the most favorite games from the Ubisoft lineup. However, added with the release of Just Dance 2018, the game developer was in for a surprise.
In a recent quarterly conference call, the company’s chief executive officer Yves Guillemot noted that Nintendo Switch sales and in extension, the release of the Ubisoft game on the console have earned strong revenue.
Among the released games on Nintendo Switch, Rabbids alone accounted for 20 percent overall sales for the company’s sales. Ubisoft is pleased with Nintendo Switch’s revenue potential for the company.
This is a shoo-in for bigger Ubisoft games to be featured on Nintendo Switch. It might seem like a predicted course of action. The revenue stats might have put gears on the process. So, Nintendo users might be playing Ubisoft games on Nintendo Switch way before they expected.
