Video game movies have a rocky past. Can Crossfire buck the trend?
GameDaily chats with Ubisoft's Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik about creating the first mainstream TV show about game development.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot acknowledged that the current fiscal year has been 'well below expectations,' but the back catalog performed well in Q3 and Uplay has seen big growth.
Ubisoft is making a play to 'strengthen our idle portfolio,' according to Jean-Michel Detoc. Sensor Tower says it's a good move for Ubisoft to bolster its mobile presence.
The French developer and publisher hopes to inject more variety into its stable of live-service games.
The publisher has also delayed a suite of its upcoming AAA titles into fiscal year 2021-21.
Ubisoft, which has several exclusive (aside from UPlay) games in the Epic Game Store, says it 'doesn't reflect' the industry's current path.
The French publisher has adapted well to the live-service era as recurring revenue from players continues to see sharp increases.
