Watch Dogs sells 4 million in first week
Record debut for a new Ubisoft IP
Ubisoft has announced ongoing record sales for Watch Dogs, which has sold-through more than 4 million copies in its first week, positioning it as the best-selling new IP at launch.
Having already broken sales records in the first 24 hours following its release, Watch Dogs is now the company’s best-selling game ever in week one.
Watch Dogs is set in Chicago and lets players become Aiden Pearce, a hacker seeking justice following a violent family tragedy. Pearce hacks into Chicago’s Central Operating System (ctOS), which controls the city’s infrastructure (security cameras, traffic lights, public transportation and more) as well as key data on the city’s residents.
Watch Dogs was released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. A Wii U version is coming this Fall.
