The French game publisher posts a 49-percent improvement over the same quarter last year

Ubi Soft Entertainment has released a report of its earnings for the third quarter of the 2000/2001 fiscal year. The report shows a 49-percent increase in sales over the same quarter the year before, and it cites the strong performance of several games, including Disney Dinosaur, Rayman 2, Disney Donald Duck: Quack Attack, and Walt Disney: The Jungle Book Groove Party as the reasons for its success.

The report also notes that sales in Germany and Italy increased by more than 150 percent, while US sales posted a small sales increase. The numbers do not reflect the performance of 3D Planet or Red Storm.
