Ubisoft releases three code-in-box versions of Switch titles

Out on shelves now

Ubisoft has put out a number of different retail titles for Switch, and it seems those versions have mostly sold out in Europe. That's why the company has replenished their stock, but with code-in-box releases instead of new game card prints. If you're in Europe, you should be able to find these code-in-box releases in Europe today.

- Assassins Creed 3 + Liberation
- Assassins Creed Rebel Collection
- Just Dance 2020

Ubisoft is the top third party publisher on Switch, say they're "reaping the benefits of Switch's huge success"

A productive partnership

Ubisoft just shared their latest quarterly financial report, and it was great news for the company. Ubisoft saw their strongest quarter in company history, and they say a lot of that success is owed to Switch.

Ubisoft revealed that they're the top third party publisher on the platform, which has led to some big numbers. Immortals: Fenyx Rising was named as a hit, and older titles like Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle continue to sell well. Ubisoft chief financial officer Frederick Duguet elaborated on that success.

“We’re also reaping the benefits of the Switch’s huge success and our position as leading third-party publisher on the platform thanks to, among others, our Just Dance games and Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. The depth and breadth of our catalog, which goes beyond the brands mentioned, provides us with ever-greater visibility and continues to be a strong driver of profitability.”
