PC and Xbox 360 game Splinter Cell: Conviction sold nearly 2m copies from launch until the end of June, Ubisoft has revealed.

This "solid performance" coupled with the "sustained sales" of Assassin's Creed 2, Just Dance and Avatar, helped the publisher earn €161 during the months of April, May and June. That Q1 FY2010 performance was up 94 per cent year-on-year.

For Q2, Ubisoft has H.A.W.X. 2 (hands-on impressions published yesterday), R.U.S.E. and Racquet Sports, among others. Earnings are expected to be much lower, at €83m.

Other statistics of note were 45 per cent of all Ubisoft Q1 game sales being made on Xbox 360; only 17 per cent were made on PS3.

It was also interesting to hear Ubisoft refer to itself as "the number four independent publisher" in the US for the first six months of 2010. Ubisoft was "number two" in Europe - obviously Pure Football did the numbers [what, 3/10? -Ed].

Ubisoft's July-to-September schedule looks like this:

  • Assassin's Creed II (MAC)
  • Assassin's Creed II: Game of the Year Edition (PS3, Xbox 360)
  • Gold's Gym Dance Workout (Wii)
  • Imagine: Resort Owner (DS)
  • Master All Classics (PSN)
  • Puzzler Collection (UK)
  • R.U.S.E. (PC, PS3 Move, Xbox 360)
  • Racquet Sports (PS3 Move)
  • Raving Rabbids: Party Collection (Wii)
  • Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game (PSN, XBLA)
  • Silent Hunter (iPad)
  • Sports Collection (DS)
