While Ubisoft is plenty excited about what Watch Dogs 2 is going to offer when it launches, it appears gamers are not quite as excited. It turns out that Ubisoft has not recorded as many preorders as they had been hoping would be coming in for the upcoming title.

The company was recently on an earnings call and talked about how the preorders have not been hitting the goals the company set for Watch Dogs 2. The company said that they are going to be reducing the revenue target for FY17 overall but it appears Watch Dogs 2 is playing at least a part of that.

At the same time, Ubisoft has said it has only gotten positive feedback about the game. Perhaps the backlash against the original Watch Dogs has damaged the preorders. It’s possible once the game releases, the company will see plenty of sales. Watch Dogs 2 is due to release on November 15 for the Xbox One and PS4 and two weeks later on the PC.

    It’s because nobody wants to play as a hipster douchebag.

    Dear Ubisoft, it’s not us, it’s you. People don’t pre-order your shizt anymore. They wait until they know it’s worth buying like they are supposed to. Review copies provided by Redbox. 3 bucks at Redbox and a 24hr game rental is better than 5 bucks for a preorder at Gamestop when there are already gonna be plenty of available copies on release day. The pre-order DLC is never worth the pre-order anymore. Nope.

    Peak-Ubi was reached 18 months ago. That’s when we started feeling ripped off + bored.

    Try something different Ubisoft! – we don’t want re-skinned Assassins Creed 17 or Far Cry on Mars etc…

    Well, the only thing original they can bring to the table is a remaster of all the Prince of Persia titles or a reboot in another culture, say Egypt or anywhere else…There have been many monarchies to steal princely game titles from…already tired of their menus of creeds, ghosts, dogs and cries…A splinter cell announcement won’t go amiss.
