Splinter Cell and Rayman Underwhelming Sales Figures Revealed

During Ubisoft’s recent financial call that discussed the previous quarter’s performance, the sales numbers for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rayman: Legends were revealed. As of the call, Splinter Cell: Blacklist (which has been released on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U) has sold 2 million units. The platformer Rayman: Legends (which has been released on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, and Wii U) has sold almost 1 million units. This was stated after announcing that the company posted an $83 million loss for the latest reporting period.

It was already stated earlier in October that these titles had underperformed according to sales targets that the company had for them. These results eventually led to the company’s decision to delay the titles Watch Dogs and The Crew until sometime around first quarter 2014. The news was disheartening considering that the critical acclaim (Splinter Cell metacritic ratings are around 80 while Rayman’s rating averages around 90) both titles received point towards them both being a success. The performance was attributed to consumers possibly awaiting the next generation consoles to spend their dollars. With that said, they set performance goals at launch for both next generation consoles to be around 10 million units.

Ubisoft also confirmed sales expectations for South Park: Stick of Truth to be around 1 to 2 million units. Earlier this month, the game’s release date was also delayed until March of 2014. Originally scheduled for release in December, Ubisoft stated the following:

“Within three weeks after acquiring the game, we sadly realized we had to turn this thing upside down if we hoped to deliver the experience everybody wanted,” says Ubisoft North America’s president Laurent Detoc. “It’s been such a major overhaul to get to the point where we are that we couldn’t let it go, even if that meant missing December.”
