While the revenue announcement from Ubisoft this week was full of good news for investors, gamers may be a little bummed by the news that two of Ubi's most highly anticipated titles, 'Assassin's Creed' and 'Brother's in Arms Hell's Highway' have been pushed back from first quarter 2007 dates to TBA 2007 dates.

In other Ubi news, the company surprised everyone by announcing 'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2'. At this time we have no plot nor platform details, but GRAW2 will be released in the first quarter of 2007, perhaps to make up for the 'Assassin's' and 'BIA' delays.
Finally, Ubisoft announced it would release seven more Wii titles by the end of the fiscal year (March 2007), including "one nonannounced new brand". For those keeping track, that's seven previously announced launch titles, and seven newly announced launch titles, means Ubisoft will have fourteen Wii titles available by April 2007.
I believe the time has come to invest in Ubi.
