News Brief

In the fiscal quarter that ended in June, 51 percent of Ubisoft’s revenue stemmed from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles that debuted last November, the company announced today. It was a big quarter for the French game publisher, which grossed $489 million versus $103 million at the same time last year. That growth was led by the new game Watch Dogs, which sold eight million copies to stores. Ubisoft projects next quarter’s sales to be about $116 million, down 61 percent from the same quarter in 2013.
