Ubisoft has released its Q1 2019/20 Financial report, confirming that PC is now the company's top platform in terms of "net bookings", accounting for 34% of the company's business, exceeding PS4's 31%.  

Part of this success comes from the continued success of Rainbow Six: Seige, which remains popular on PC, alongside titles such as The Division 2 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, all of which have solid PC versions. 

At the end of Ubisoft's 2018/19 financial year, Ubisoft stated that PC sales were up 79% year over year with UPlay generating 27% of the company's revenue when compared to 18% the previous year. Today, PC is a bigger earner for Ubisoft than PS4, showcasing the strength of the platform. 
 
So in my personal opinion PC gaming is still very strong and won't lose out to consoles any time soon. 

Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    Eh, 34% vs 31% seems rather equal to me. I never like how tech news plays shell games with statistics. The hidden elephant in the room is where is the other 35% coming from?

    They didn't list Xbox, Switch or mobile games. I really feel PC is the best platform but I also admit some games I don't enjoy as much on the PC as a console but mostly that is personal preference.
