Ubisoft stock takes a haystack dive after Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s release

Ubisoft’s stock has taken a leap of faith pain, dropping 9.12% to $3.29 USD a share the day of Assassin’s Creed: Unity‘s launch.

While we haven’t had any big bugs or glitches occur in our playthrough of the new current-gen title, we seem to be in the minority; Yahoo Finance attributes the stock dip to poor reviews of the title. The game has a current Metacritic ranking of 76.

“The game’s bugs and poor performance is becoming a laughing-stock right now on the Internet,” Yahoo Finance reported. “There are thousands of posts flooding message boards and Youtube showing graphical glitches, crashes, and frame-rate problems.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is reminding gamers of EA’s Battlefield 4 launch problems last year. Ubisoft would have been better off to delay Unity like Take-Two does frequently with their Grand Theft Auto games than to release it in this state.”
