What is even going on.

In distressing news, two of the best games I’ve played this year — Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rayman Legends — have both failed to reach the sales targets Ubisoft was hoping for.
“We have experienced lower sales than we anticipated when we gave our targets,” said Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez in an investor call. “Already released games such as Splinter Cell, Rayman and others.”
Ubisoft has revised its sales targets for the year down to €1 billion from €1.42 billion, and now expects to be operating at a loss this financial year.
Although I still haven’t finished Rayman, what I’ve played so far as been ridiculously good, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist was just a genuinely great stealth experience. Please do check them out.
