Ubisoft has published its quarter 1 2010-11 estimated sales figures, which state that Sam Fisher's latest outing managed to clear 1.9 million sales since its April launch, making for a strong year for the firm so far.

Sustained sales of Splinter Cell: Conviction, Assassin's Creed II, Avatar and casual titles like Wii mega-hit Just Dance have also combined to make for estimated sales for the quarter ending June 30th of €160 million, up 93 percent compared to the €83 million recorded for the first quarter 2009-10.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said, "Our sales performance this quarter reflects the success of several titles and attests to the quality of our game catalog. It's proof of Ubisoft's ability to make its mark in an ever demanding video games sector."

Highlights for the following quarter 2 are listed as HAWX 2 and RTS title RUSE, which are estimated to net Ubisoft €83 million, in line with last year. It's hoped that the full year will see Ubisoft return to "profitable growth and positive cash flow."

In other news, Driver: San Francisco has skidded from its previous launch date of November 2010 into 2011, in order to avoid "the competitive market at Christmas". Bah humbug!

If they delayed Driver than they better release it in late spring or summer because there are some good games coming out in early 2011.

Nice to see Splinter Cell sell well but I am still disappointed by it.

They should make more DLC for Splinter Cell: Conviction. I would love some single player DLC.

#5 Retailers in the UK arn aren't t putting the price of games up, a story a last week read 'We're taking the bullet, so you don't have too' further reading into the story saying that retailers will be keeping the same prices for new games (£39.99).

@7, spot on! The VAT increase comes from the retailers profits, not out pockets, at least for now. Give it a while, once they see how much more they lose it'll change and games will return to £50-60 on a regular basis (N64 Games price at release, ridiculous!)

Make the most of it for now guys (anyone in the UK that is!)

I think Ubisoft is slipping under. I wouldnt be surprised if they went out of business. The only game they make that is even fun IMO is Ranibow Six. (Which they havent even announced a new one yet) :(

@2, I agree. The game just doesn't look as interesting as the old ones. Good news about SC:C, though! I had a really fun time with that game.

I wish Ubisoft would make more room for free DlC since they been done with that couple weeks ago. Sad to see it go, idk if it said for a period of time or limited time. But overall I enjoy Conviction, mainly built around CO-OP.
On the other hand, Driver: SF would get owned by the games coming out in the later year, but im also dissapoinnted that its been delayed until next year. Seems so damn far aways!!!!

You're expecting them to go under after recording a 93% increase in profits from the year before?

Unfortunately, quality of games doesn't mean sucess of company. See Activison for details.

I was super excited when they announced the new Driver.... until I saw the gameplay.. hopefully it ends up being a good game Driv3r was a fantastic game I spent many hours playing it.. Glad Conviction did well Ubisoft took big risks with that one though I'm sure pretty much everyone still misses Chaos Theory, I know I do.. a lot. :D

Lastly, Future Soldier is going to be SO AMAZING YAY!!! Ubisoft rocks.

Several, but Conviction isn't mentioned. Obvious bad sales are obvious.

Great news for Ubi, bad news for gamers. I was really looking forward to playing Driver this year. One of the few games I was looking forward to this holiday.
First Splinter Cell was bumped, then Ghost Recon and the beta, now Driver. Watch, H.A.W.X. 2 will be next. Mark my words.

@21 - First paragraph, it states 1.9million sales for Conviction.
Gotta remember that these articles on x360a are just summaries of the full statements made by companies.
