Today, Ubisoft reported fiscal-year earnings that defied the pervasive gloom dominating the current economic landscape, saying that earnings during the period had risen 14 percent to €1.05 billion ($1.50 billion). A significant contributor to the company's strong performance was Shaun White Snowboarding, with Ubisoft explicitly calling out the Wii edition as putting on a "very strong showing."
In a postearnings conference call with investors, Ubisoft offered more color on just how well the game performed, with CEO Yves Guillemot saying that the Shaun White franchise has now achieved sales of 3 million units. Given that strong performance, it came as no surprise when Guillemot then confirmed that Ubisoft intends to release new installments in the franchise.
"You can expect more Shaun White in the future," Guillemot plainly told investors. Unfortunately, the Ubisoft executive did not provide a time frame in which the next installment in the Shaun White franchise would surface. Currently, the publisher does not have it penciled in for release during its current fiscal year, which runs through March 31, 2010.
Though the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, DS, and PC editions of the game left critics cool on their launch in November, Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip for the Wii earned generally positive reviews.
