Ubisoft's earnings up; Splinter Cell Conviction delayed

sc convictionUbisoft released their first quarter 2007-08 financial results today and reported sales of €134 million ($185.2 million), which is a 90.5% increase from the same period last year. Attributing to this success were continued sales of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP, the releases of Surf’s Up, Prince of Persia, Oblivion and Call of Juarez and older games from the Petz series and TNMT.

79% of Ubisoft’s first quarter sales came from games for the next-generation consoles — 21% came from PS3 games and 16% came from DS games. By the end of this year, Ubisoft will launch Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for PS3, PC and PSP, The Settlers 6 for PC, Jam Sessions for DS and the European edition of Surf’s Up.

Unfortunately, Ubisoft revealed a delay to the upcoming stealth/action game — Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction. It was originally scheduled for a November release for PC and Xbox 360 but it’s been pushed back to Ubisoft’s fourth fiscal quarter — January to March 2008. In addition, Far Cry 2 will be released during that same period too.

Lastly, Ubisoft announced they’ll be publishing and developing a video game based on director James Cameron’s upcoming sci-fi film, The Avatar. The game will launch with the film’s release, which is sometime in May 2009.
