Ubisoft chief financial officer Alain Martinez said that the publisher was pleased with the performance of the PS Vita-exclusive Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation in an investor conference call held earlier today.
Despite the fact that the title wasn't a blockbuster for the company compared to its successful console titles, Martinez said the company was "pretty happy" with how Liberation performed. He also urged developers not to count the Vita out just yet as a potential platform for their games.
"Regarding the Vita, what I can say is last year ... we reduced the number of launches, but actually, we did pretty well on Assassin's Creed PS Vita," Martinez said. "We are close to 600,000 units, so it's a good achievement, we are pretty happy with this figure. So, I wouldn't discount the PS Vita. If you have the right product, the right quality, it might work."
Ubisoft CEO also announced the company's intentions to launch a new Assassin's Creed featuring a new hero and time period sometime in the next fiscal year during the same call.
