Pachter: Assassin's Creed 2 before March 2010
Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has offered his predictions for Ubisoft's upcoming game release plans, stating Assassin's Creed 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction will be released before March 2010.
From Pachter’s report:
"We believe investors should focus on Ubisoft’s prospects for FY:10, particularly as its products continue to sell well on the strong Wii and DS platforms, and as it rolls out a suberb [sic] lineup. We expect solid year-over-year growth from the casual (Nintendo) games lineup, with the introduction of two new brands next fall, and expect strong revenue contribution from Assassin’s Creed 2, Splinter Cell Conviction and Avatar next fiscal year."
While development of a sequel to Assassin’s Creed has already been confirmed, Pachter’s forecast of a pre-March 2010 launch is currently the closest we have to a release window for the hotly anticipated title.
