Splinter Cell: Conviction Helps Ubisoft Break Sales Goals

Ubisoft has released a summary of their sales figures from the first quarter of the year, and things are looking very good. We’ve got details on the success of Splinter Cell: Conviction, which franchises are sustaining sales, and which releases have been shifted around.

Ubisoft’s latest Sam Fisher adventure raked in 1.9 million in sales for the game since its release in April. The success of this stealth title helped increase Ubisoft’s overall sales 93 percent since last year at this time, from $83 million to $160 million. Their original projected sales for the quarter were $145 million. The company reports continuing sales from Just Dance, Assassin’s Creed 2, and Avatar helped it reach its goal.

Next quarter we can look forward to a hell of a lot of acronymns with H.A.W.X. 2 and R.U.S.E., which are predicted to pull in $83 million.

After that you can look forward to Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood between January and March 2011, and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Driver: San Diego later in 2011. The new Driver title was delayed due to a “competitive environment,” so let’s hope the other upcoming titles don’t suffer the same fate.
