    Its the expected as they prop up their game sales at release and then they drop under projections because said projections are inflated simply to raise the forecast.

    That dude is a CCP shill. I made the mistake of skimming his other posts to see if he had anything else like those linked.

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint is such a monumental failure that it is now 20-30% off, 25 days after release.

    It keeps happening. Record franchise game sales? Fuck it, switch to F2P and nickel and dime everyone with microtransactions instead.

    Well they have to be salty. Ubisoft is probably the only major publisher that doesn't have a live service cash cow like Fortnite, Apex Legends, CoD: Warzone, and GTA Online.

    And they've been shoving microtransactions into full price games so far anyway.

    Lying cunt, ubisoft's time-saver mtx is people paying for less of what they hate.

    The Ubisoft stock is losing 10% today and weren't exactly stellar performers compared to other gaming companies.

    But you probably assume that there's a video game and games as a service bubble in general. I don't really think so. Boomers paid $100/mo for something stupid like cable TV.

    Rainbow Six Siege is a fairly popular and long-running cash cow for them. Not sure if it is quite as big as the games mentioned above though.

    Live service elements have already made their way into their other franchises such as Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs and Immortals Fenyx Rising.

    Division 2 was a fail but I understand Division 1 was quite popular. What I don't get is why do you (or I) keep playing shit where every type of weapon you have becomes obsolete the moment you level up. And that's like 4-10 times a day in the beginning.

    While Div2 was a failure at launch, it looks like it might done well enough (perhaps from discounts or MTX) for Ubisoft to continue supporting it as it is getting new gamemode, a Free-to-play game, a mobile version and even a novel towards the later part of this year.

    As for other your comment, it all started with Diablo 1. Then Borderlands applied to same formula for what is now considered the looter shooter genre.

    I'm sure this is going to lead to more quality, better products and overall much improved games along with a much better and carefree workplace for everyone with them in charge. These people look like they understand "games" and the concept of the word "fun". Good luck UbiShit.

    Good thing that Ubisoft has not released anything remotely interesting in the last decade.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the Rayman games are probably not going to be worked on by Ubisoft anymore. Probably due to platformers as a genre not being popular anymore as well as fewer opportunities for "monetization"...
