Posted on April 1, 2008, Jon Soucy Ubisoft is Already Having a Great 2008; Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Sells Two Million Units
Ubisoft is predicting an even better than expected 2008, according to their recent financial report. They’re now aiming for a sales target of $920 million, instead of the previous target of $875 million. Part of this is due to the fact that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 has moved an unexpected two million units to date. Not bad for a week. As such, I suppose Ubisoft has plenty of reason to gloat:
“As expected, 2008 is off to be a record year for the videogame market and our games have performed remarkably well in this context. Assassin’s Creed and our Games For Everyone brands continued their strong performance and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 had a better than expected start. One year after the great success of the first title, the second iteration, which provides another unique multi-player experience in the much enjoyed Tom Clancy environment, is ranked among the top games on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in almost every country.”
I’ve got no problems with Ubisoft, so, hey, good for them. Besides, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is pretty great, though flawed, game (which consuming most of my gaming time these days).
