Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rayman Legends Miss Sales Targets

Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rayman Legends have fallen short of their sales targets, Ubisoft has revealed.

Both games enjoyed a positive critical reception, but failed to live up to Ubisoft’s expectations in stores, the publisher told investors last night. 

The shortfall has contributed to a reduction in Ubisoft’s revenue expectations for the current financial year, dropping from $1.94 billion to $1.38bn.

"As we have said we have experienced lower sales than we anticipated when we gave our targets," said Ubisoft exec Alain Martinez, pointing to "already released games such as Splinter Cell, Rayman and others."

There is another reason for this drop, of course. Yesterday it was announced that both Watch Dogs and The Crew have been delayed into next year.

Watch Dogs had been slated for a November 2013 release, but will now hit in Spring 2014, while The Crew has slipped from a Q1 2014 to Q2 2014, meaning it’ll hit between July and September next year.

It means that neither title will have an impact on this year's sales figures and that fans will have to wait a little longer before Ubisoft's next-gen push begins in earnest.
