Sometime back, we had confirmation that UbiSoft were “working hard on the product”, but with the confirmation they didn’t give a release target for the game. Now, an industry analyst, Michael Pachter, thinks that he has the prefect release target for the game.
In a note to investors today in anticipation of Ubisoft’s third-quarter earnings report, Pachter of Wedbush Morgan Securities predicted that Assassin’s Creed 2 will be out before the end of the company’s 2010 Fiscal Year.
“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.”
