The lights are on
Ubisoft just released its financials report for the quarter ending June 30, posting gains of $27.2 percent over last year. The company credits a couple of recent hits for the increase.
Ghost Recon: Future Solider marked the long-awaited return of the popular franchise, and so far fans have embraced the game. Ubisoft characterized sales of the title as "higher than expected." The company also noted the success of Trials Evolution, which sold over 100,000 copies in a day on Xbox Live Arcade, setting a new record.
However, it cautioned that it might not match 2011's numbers in the next quarter, due to the surprisingly strong sales of last year's Drive: San Francisco. Still, with games like Just Dance 4 and Assassin's Creed III still slated to release in 2012, the company should have a very good holiday season.

First good financial news I've heard for a game company in a while.
Ubisoft, as well as Rocksteady have me hopeful, especially for this and next year.

I'm glad they did good last quarter. I never like to hear a game company hurting.
EA's probably very happy about this, they own about 20% of Ubisoft.
Good for them, I say. They make great games, they deserve profit.
I'm just happy to think there will be development funds available for WATCH_DOGS. :)
Good for them, they are quite a good company.
I'm glad to hear that at least one company is doing good during these rough times.
