French software maker Ubisoft reported their first-half 2007-2008 sales yesterday, and along with talk of "improvements in current operating income expected" and sales coming to "261 Million Euros, up 51.8%" from last year, is the word that four Ubisoft games are being delayed until "fiscal 2008-09."
"Which games?" I hear you asking. "I dunno. They didn't say." I reply.
Ubi's only hints as to the identity of the properties is word that one is an existing Ubisoft franchise, meaning the other three are new brands.
Here are the franchises Ubi will be putting out in 2007-08:
- Brothers in Arms
- Far Cry
- Rayman Raving Rabbids
- The Settlers
- Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
- An "unannounced franchise"
And the new brands:
- Assassin's Creed
- Tom Clancy's End War
So, basically, Ubisoft is announcing the delays of four previously unannounced games. Huh.
