GameStop Corporation, the world largest video game retailer has tumbled around 15 percentage of its predicted revenue after third-quarter fell down. The Company has disappointed from its predicted holiday profit, after the delay in the release of Assassin Creed Unity.
GameStop Corporation was based in Grapevine, Texas mentioned in a statement that, delay in release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, the sales were held back. After the release of new gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft, the sales of older-generation hardware has reduced in sales than the expected rates.

“The shift of Assassins Creed impacted our quarter by 5 cents per share,” “My treatments have gone very well and I am blessed to say that I had excellent results on my follow-up visit to Duke and Baylor last week,”
Not only in the delay of Assassin Creed Unity, but also shrinking sales of older Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 models also becomes a factor for the loss in revenue for the company. Almost 58 percent of the sales were declining after the release of new consoles from the Microsoft Corporation and Sony Corporation.

They were monitoring developments in labor talks between West Coast ports and longshoremen. A work slowdown stretching from San Diego to the Canadian border may affect hardware sales.

GameStop also mentioned that the store sales value will rise to 2 percent from the decline of 5 percent.
