Yves Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer of Ubisoft, stated: “With the exceptional performance of Assassin’s Creed, the fastest-selling new video game intellectual property in the US ever, Ubisoft’s teams have once again demonstrated their expertise in creating and promoting major brands. These regular-sequel franchises are a source of very high profitability both in the short and long term. Drawing on its strong internal development capacities, Ubisoft is currently in an ideal position to continue to develop numerous new creations — an essential condition for winning market share and ensuring strong growth going forward.”

However Ubisoft also stated that Tom Clancy’s EndWar, Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway and Far Cry 2 will be released later than expected.

“As a result of this outstanding sales performance and solid showings from Ubisoft’s other games — particularly its “casual” range — Ubisoft has significantly raised its forecasts for 2007-08. At the same time it has strengthened the line-up of games for next year, with titles such as Tom Clancy’s EndWar, Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway and Far Cry 2 now scheduled for release in fiscal 2008-09 rather than the fourth quarter of 2007-08.”
