PS4 rose 7 percentage points for the quarter ended December 31 compared to the same period last year. The Xbox One also increased, rising from 23 percent to 27 percent for the latest reporting period.

The PC was third, making up 12 percent of Ubisoft game sales. Behind it were Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, which were the only two platforms to decrease year-over-year, dropping from 13 percent to 4 percent and 11 percent to 2 percent, respectively.

Through the first nine months of Ubisoft's current fiscal year, the PS4 (37 percent) is also the leader, followed by Xbox One (23 percent), PC (14 percent), Others (9 percent), Wii and Xbox 360 (5 percent each), PS3 (4 percent), and Wii U (3 percent).

2015's Assassin's Creed Syndicate was released only for new-generation consoles and PC, while the same will be true for this month's Far Cry Primal and The Division in March.

Ubisoft has confirmed that it won't release more Assassin's Creed games for Xbox 360 and PS3, but it remains to be seen if the same will be true for other big franchises like Far Cry and Watch Dogs, the latter of which is getting a sequel by April 2017.

The publisher also shared a chart that reveals game sales by region. North America led the way, followed by Europe and the rest of the world for both the latest quarter and trailing nine months. There was no percentage change for any region or any time period.
