Ubisoft taking serious look at mobile? Ubisoft mobile domain names registered

Assassins Creed : Altair's Chronicles

It looks like Ubisoft could be taking mobile gaming more serious in 2012.

On February 1, the video game publisher registered the domain names Ubisoftmobile.com (Whois) and Ubisoft-mobile.com (Whois).

While domain name registrations are not necessarily concrete indicators of a company’s plans, social and mobile gaming is big business. 

In the past year, Ubisoft has been ramping up its social gaming efforts by growing its Bay Area workforce and releasing new social gaming titles on Facebook.  But according to AppData, Ubisoft barely breaks the Top 100 developer leaderboard with only 3.5 monthly active users on Facebook, led by The Smurfs & Co.

Zynga by comparison, has nearly 240 million monthly active users on Facebook as of today.

As of the time of this story, ubisoftmobile.com and ubisoft-mobile.com are parked pages and do not direct users to an Ubisoft site.
