During Ubisoft’s fourth quarterly conference call to analysts and investors, Chief Financial Officer Alain Martinez confirmed the publisher’s future support for Nintendo Switch.
Ubisoft has been a leading third-party publisher on many Nintendo platforms over the last decade with support for its most recent consoles Wii and Wii U, something the publisher intends to maintain once again with Nintendo Switch.
“We will be delivering some great games for the Switch,” said Martinez. “The platform’s launch is going incredibly well and we believe the Switch has the potential to reach a wide audience. As you know, Ubisoft has been the leading third-party publisher on Nintendo’s console over the past 10 years, and we intend to maintain that position. Again, our assumptions are reasonable and we can’t wait to tell you more.”
Chief Executive Officer, Yves Guillemot, also present during the investor call, backed up Martinez’s statement with a more clarified response to Ubisoft’s investors, “We have new guidance on the Switch. We have one new game not announced and we have also Just Dance that is coming on the machines, plus one or two others.”
Yesterday, following the release of its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 2017, Ubisoft announced that it intends to release Far Cry 5, Crew 2, South Park: The Fractured But Whole and a new Assassin’s Creed game over the course of the next 12 months, but wouldn’t disclose if any of the previously mentioned titles might be heading to Nintendo Switch in addition to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in the fiscal year 2018.
