Ubisoft focusing on major franchises, Xbox 360, PS3

Ubisoft’s focus in their 2010-11 fiscal year (April 2010 – March 2011) will be on HD consoles and major franchises, CEO Yves Guillemot said in the company’s third fiscal quarter update.

Bringing Assassin’s Creed II and its 40% higher sales over its predecessor as an example, Guillemot explains that Ubisoft clearly performs well in the high-end games market and that they plan to continue refocusing development resources in order to have a stronger line-up of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles in the future.

Currently known titles expected before April 2011 are R.U.S.E., Splinter Cell: Conviction, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Raving Rabbids 4, a new Driver title, the multiplayer-equipped Assassin’s Creed game, and the new Ghost Recon.

A follow-up to Tom Clancy’s EndWar is in the works as well, with an undetermined release window.

Ubisoft also notes that “new franchises and innovations” will be announced throughout the year.
