Ubisoft has just announced that it has shipped 8 million copies of Watch Dogs since the game’s launch in May. The news stems from the official company announcement in its Q1 2014 – 2015 financial report.
In its first week at retail, Watch Dogs sales hit 4 million, making it Ubisoft’s “best-selling game ever in week one.” It also broke the publisher’s day-one sales records.
“The success of Watch Dogs and the quality of our games portfolio presented at this year’s E3 highlight our strategic positioning as well as our continuous drive for innovation, and affirm our long-term approach,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in today’s report. “Watch Dogs is now well-positioned as a major franchise and we will be able to replicate and build on its success in the coming years. Its sales performance testifies to Ubisoft’s expertise as a creator of blockbuster brands.”
Awesome news Ubisoft. A Wii U version of the popular title is still set to ship later this year.
