The growth of Ubisoft in the past 2 gens has been amazing. Not sure how they compare to EA or T2, but they're definitely a much bigger company than in their PS2 days.
Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Siege (this gen), Watch Dogs (this gen) and The Division (also this gen) seem to have become their main pillars. Plus they've launched a ton of other games, both big and small, with (usually) a decent margin of success.
Best third party this gen for me. Top quality across the board from reboots of their classic franchises to new IP, to supporting their already released games, to different artstyles and industry standard visual fidelity (at least on PC).
A shame the forum at large seem to have little to no interest in their games. Something tells me if the likes of AC or FC or TD2 were exclusives people would rave about them. Their loss...
Yeah, they were calling it the biggest new IP ever for a while (after Destiny launched) so that probably puts it at 15+ million copies sold. It doesn't sound quite right that FC5 has sold that much in just one year.
