Ubisoft held an earnings call this week to discuss its financial outlook after the delay of Watch Dogs and The Crew to Spring 2014. One analyst asked if "that one big title that came out recently" could negatively affect Ubisoft's financials. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot responded by saying that the effect of blockbuster games could have a positive impact because it leaves gamers wanting more.
"Each time there's a megablockbuster that takes lots of sales, it has an impact around it for sure. There's a positive and negative effect. The positive one is that it's actually pushing lots of players to come back to their machine and play.
So it generally has a positive impact on the games that come after because those guys want more now that they've experimented with a very good quality game. So we can now expect a positive effect after the launch."
Regarding the decision to delay Watch Dogs, Guillemot said that extra time was needed to work on the game in order to "deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience."
