Watch Dogs was released in May and is avilable for both previous-gen and next-gen consoles as well as the PC. The game is a smash hit. In fact, just a day after launch, Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs had become its fastest selling game to date. In the first week alone sales had surpassed 4 million units.
Now Ubisoft has given us another update and it looks like over 8 million units have been shipped so far. I think we can safely say that there will be a sequel or 3.
Yves Guillemot, CEO and co-founder of Ubisoft, says that Watch Dogs is “well positioned” as a major franchise and that they will be able to “replicate and build on its success in the coming years.” The publisher had a strong first quarter thanks to this game. Sales revenue passed €360 million which is a 374 percent increase over the same quarter last year.
Half of the revenue came from sales on the PS4 and Xbox One. The publisher also has other strong franchises like Assassin’s Creed Unity, The Division, Far Cry 4 and a handful of others, aside from Watch Dogs. They are doing great at the moment. One good game can make a huge difference though.
