Ubisoft happy with PlayStation Vita sales.

Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation has shipped 600,000 units worldwide, Ubisoft confirmed during its financial call today.

“Regarding Vita, last FY, we did pretty well on Assassin’s Creed, close to 600k units – pretty happy with figure,” said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. “I wouldn’t discount PS Vita, right quality, it might work.”

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    Its about time they released numbers… 600,000 is very good. I’ll probably get it in a couple years when I get a Vita…

    I think it would have done better if it launched on a day other than AC3 launching… I mean, just on their facebook they rarely ever talked about Liberation. It was mostly AC3 talk.

    I hope they consider this in their decisions for the future.

    I hope that they give it another go, and don’t release it with a main title next time. AC3: Liberation was great. Some flaws, but I’d love to see a sequel to improve on it. Or an all new AC to improve on what they started… but I’d really like to see a more fleshed out Aveline.

      A very sound assessment. I feel if Ubisoft would like to continue forward, a good strategy would be to release this type of game during the drought moments just before a big mainline release. I like the idea of having synergy with the main title but same day probably was a bit too much. I am glad Yves realizes the potential of making a good handheld project like this. It’s far more affordable, allows you to explore little ideas within a bigger IP, train up new teams,etc. This can work and provide lots of opportunities, industry please take note.

        I don’t think you’ve played Liberation.

        This is pretty awesome news for them and us. Hopefully we get another AC on vita.

    This makes me smile as it proves that gamers are looking for solid, full blown games like this and it’s worth the effort to craft them for the handheld.

  • Prodigy-X

    This is exactly why Capcom should get of their lazy asses and support the system.

    while the franchise is getting a little stale.

    at least alot of gamers are supporting it.

    It’s doing really well! Didn’t expected that, 600k units. Oh wow. Probably the bundle worked as well.
