Ubisoft has revealed during its latest financial call that Watch Dogs has shipped 8 million units worldwide.
Of course, that’s quantity sent to retailer, not units sold, but it's likely that sales are not too far behind.
“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,” CVEO 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.”
Ubisoft says that it made record sales of €360 million during the quarter ending June 30 2014 – a 374% increase on the €76 million of the same quarter one year ago.
The publisher expects modest sales results in the second quarter, since it doesn't have too much releasing in this quarter, however, with Assassin’s Creed: Unity, The Crew, The Division, Far Cry 4, Just Dance Now and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege as upcoming Ubisoft releases, there is plenty of profit on the horizon.
Finally, it was also revealed that news on PS3/Xbox 360 title, Assassin’s Creed: Comet will be revealed soon.
