Ubisoft Unleashes 05-06 CatalogUbi soft 05-06 Catalog Ubisoft unveils its 2005-2006 product catalog and adds to its financial prospects. Ubisoft, one of the world’s leading video game publishers, is pleased to announce its product catalog for fiscal year 2005-2006 (ending March 31, 2006) and provide additional information on its financial prospects. First semester: Four major launches, including Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Lockdown In light of strong sales for titles launched over the past few months as well as the high number of orders placed for blockbusters scheduled to hit the market by the close of fiscal year 2004-2005 (on March 31st), Ubisoft management has decided to release Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Lockdown™ in the first half of fiscal year 2005-2006, rather than in March 2005. This title, which is ready for launch, will thus boost the beginning of fiscal year 2005-2006 with estimated sales of 1.5 to 2 million units. In addition to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Lockdown™, the first six months will see the release of three other major titles: Far Cry Instincts on consoles, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith for portable consoles and 187 Ride or Die, a new brand in the urban street-racing segment. Third quarter: Peter Jackson’s King Kong and Brothers in Arms Road to Hill 30 will join Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon and Prince of Persia for an explosive holiday season. While Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon and Prince of Persia will attempt to break the sales records achieved during the 2004 holiday season, Peter Jackson’s King Kong is clearly shaping up to be one of the season’s major blockbusters. These titles will be supplemented by a new chapter of Brothers In Arms, which has, in March, established itself as the benchmark brand in the World War II shooting-game segment. Fourth quarter: new adventures for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell and three new brands with Killing Day (working title), an FPS specifically designed for next-generation consoles, Ubisoft plans to demonstrate once again its technological lead and highlight the capabilities of the new consoles. The group will also mark its entry into the sports segment with a basketball game And 1 and reinforce its presence in the strategy segment with two games under the Might & Magic brand. 32 products will be launched in total during fiscal year 2005-2006, including three for Nintendo DS, five for Sony’s new PlayStation Portable console and four for the new next-generation console from Microsoft.
