According to Ubisoft, “Ghost Recon Wildlands” is the most successful title of the current 2017/2018 financial year. In addition, the company published further statistics for the first quarter.
Over the past few weeks, the Ubisoft executives have repeatedly emphasized the successful performance of the in-house open-world shooter “Ghost Recon Wildlands”.
This was followed by the official annual report on the first quarter, which ended a few weeks ago (1 April 2017 – 30 June 2017). As Ubisoft points out, “Ghost Recon Wildlands” has grown to become the most successful title for the current year.
Although the French company was not able to elicit any firm sales figures, it also provided further details on the performance in the first quarter of the current fiscal year 2017/2018, which we of course do not want to deprive you of.
