PC outsold PS4 in Ubisoft's Q1 2019/20 Financials
"Ubisoft has released its Q1 2019/20 Financial report, confirming that PC is now the company's top platform in terms of "net bookings", accounting for 34% of the company's business, exceeding PS4's 31%.
Part of this success comes from the continued success of Rainbow Six: Seige, which remains popular on PC, alongside titles such as The Division 2 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, all of which have solid PC versions.
At the end of Ubisoft's 2018/19 financial year, Ubisoft stated that PC sales were up 79% year over year with UPlay generating 27% of the company's revenue when compared to 18% the previous year. Today, PC is a bigger earner for Ubisoft than PS4, showcasing the strength of the platform.
With the release of The Division 2, Ubisoft has seen UPlay sales for the franchise increase by a factor of 10x when compared to the series' previous outing. This is due to Ubisoft's partnership with Epic Games, which prevented the game's release on Steam, moving PC gamers to alternative storefronts where the publisher could benefit from an increased revenue share. High Season pass sales have also contributed to Ubisoft's sales growth on both PC and consoles."
Watch out, PS4; PC is the biggest seller for Ubisoft this year, and I'm sure that trend will continue onto other 3rd parties.
