Ubisoft has issued an investor press release outlining the company’s releases in the upcoming fiscal year which runs from April 2016 – March 2017. The list includes the sequel to Watchdogs, For Honor, and an unannounced AAA title.
“In 2016-17 the Company expects to achieve sales of around €1,700 million, non-IFRS operating income of approximately €230 million and strong free cash flow generation. Ubisoft will launch a very high-quality line-up, including For Honor, South Park the Fractured but Whole, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon WildLands, the next installment of Watchdogs, and a new high-potential AAA brand with strong digital live services. Growth also will be driven by further increases in revenues for the digital segment and the back catalog.”
For Honor, South Park the Fractured but Whole, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands were all revealed during Ubisoft’s media briefing at E3 2015 with no release dates.
Ubisoft also revealed today that there will be no new Assassin’s Creed installment releasing in 2016, confirming rumors that the series would take a year off to revaluate.
Ubisoft will be holding its third quarter earnings call this afternoon.
Still left to release in fiscal 2015 for Ubisoft is the upcoming third-person RPG shooter, The Division which will hold an open beta on PS4, Xbox One, and PS4 running from Feb. 19-21 with the full game releasing on March 8.
