Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says Watch Dogs is now “well positioned as a major franchise”.
Ubisoft has revealed that Watch Dogs has shipped – not sold – 8 million units worldwide since it’s release. This indicates fairly high demand for the game so you can count on the actual number of games sold being quite high.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot informed investors of the same today, stating that, “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.”
Other big name games like Assassin’s Creed: Unity, The Crew and Far Cry 4 are coming up in the next few months, with The Division, Rainbow 6: Siege and much more. Thoughts on Watch Dogs’ success? Let us know below.
