Very little else to mention in its financials

Ubisoft's Ketchapp and Growtopia catalogue boost mobile DAUs by 234%

Ubisoft has released its financials for the first half of its FY18 for the six months ending September 30th 2017.

It posted revenues of $543.1 million for the period up 65.7% year-on-year. Operating income came to $3.6 million for H1, up 0.7% year-on-year.

While it didn't break out its mobile sales, it did post digital sales of $399.1 million for the period. This includes digital sales of its console and PC games, as well as IAPs for those titles.

Keeping quiet

In fact, Ubisoft hardly mentioned its mobile games in its financials. The one stat it shared was that DAUs across its Ketchapp and Growtopia divisions grew by 234%.

It also noted that there was an "outperformance" from both Ketchapp its game Might and Magic Heroes: Era of Chaos. The latter was developed and published exclusively in China in a partnership with Tencent.

Looking ahead, the company is pinning its hopes on South Park: Phone Destroyer, which launched very recently. It did not reveal any information on its soft-launched titles Assassin's Creed Rebellion or Tom Clancy's ShadowBreak.
