Watch Dogs sells over 8 million units

Ubisoft has announced sales of its open-world hacking game, Watch Dogs, has reached 8 million units sold since it released back in May on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. When it launched, Watch Dogs became Ubisoft’s fastest selling game in history shifting over 4 million copies in the first week of its release. However the 8 million figure accounts for number of units sold to retailers rather than units which have been sold to consumers.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated, “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.”

“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. That expertise enables us to stand out from our competitors at the beginning of each console cycle and therefore to reach a new dimension.”
