Ubisoft’s stock has taken a substantial hit in the wake Assassin’s Creed Unity’s mixed launch.

When markets opened this morning the company’s stock had fallen from $3.62 to $3.29 per share, a more than 9 percent decline from the day before. This drop was most likely prompted by player’s and critic’s mutually negative response to the recently released Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

Since the game’s release it’s only managed to garner an average score of 76 on Metacritic with many people criticizing the game for technical issues including prominent glitches, clipping and frequent dips in the game’s frame rate. What remains to be seen, of course, is whether or not these problems will affect the company in the long term. Just because Unity left investors skittish today, after all, doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be that way tomorrow.
