A morning full of announcements from Ubisoft, as the company revealed new "Assassin's Creed," "Splinter Cell," "Red Steel" and "Ghost Recon" games releasing by the end of March 2010, in addition to introducing a "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" fighter from some of the "Super Smash Bros." team.
While disclosing sales for third quarter of fiscal 2008-2009, Ubisoft revealed "Assassin's Creed 2," a new "Ghost Recon" and the long-delayed "Splinter Cell Conviction" are coming before March 2010.
Ubisoft also revealed a new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" title in the works. It's in development at Game Arts, the same studio that handled some development on Nintendo's "Super Smash Bros. Brawl." Stay tuned, as we've asked Ubisoft for more details on that project.
Additional Wii support is coming; during a conference call this morning discussing the financial results, a Ubisoft executive seemingly accidentally mentioned a new "Red Steel" project before March 2010. The conference call also revealed Ubisoft will be actively supporting MotionPlus in upcoming games.
UPDATE: Ubisoft said disaster adventure "I Am Alive" has been delayed past this spring and coming sometime before March 2010. An analyst asked how this would affect 2009 revenues, to which Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot said the extra time would allow for a better product and, as a result, additional revenue in 2010.
What are you looking forward to most from Ubisoft over the next year or so?
