Another huge milestone for the game…
According to Ubisoft, Watch Dogs has now sold over 8 million units. The figure reportedly represents copies sold to retailers and not actual sales to the public.
Due to the game's popularity, Ubisoft's Q1 sales increased 374 percent year-on-year. The company also posted first quarter sales of approximately $489 million.
Speaking on the news, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said, "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."
Watch Dogs is now available on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. A Wii U version will be released later this fall.
