Watch Dogs breaks Ubisoft Day One sales records

It looks like Watch Dogs is a smashing success for Ubisoft.  Communications manager Gary Steinman announced today on the Ubiblog that Watch Dogs had the largest first 24 hours of sales in Ubisoft history.  “I once said that the buzz around Watch Dogs was driven by the incredible passion of our early fans,” Creative Director Jonathan Morin told the blog. “Today we broke the record for the biggest first day sales in Ubisoft history. I can never say it enough: thank you everyone! We love you all for your passion and your creativity.”  

Ubisoft’s co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot commented on the news, saying “Watch Dogs is an amazing achievement and our teams should be proud that the creativity, innovation and long hours they invested in making this game are paying off.  It’s great to see so many customers enjoy playing the game, and it shows that Watch Dogs has cracked the code for developing a new blockbuster IP and a thoroughly new-gen experience.”  These massive sales come despite many fans disappointment at the game’s seeming downgrade from it’s E3 2012 demo, but make no mistake that the game is still visually impressive.  We would like to send our sincerest congratulations to Ubisoft on these massive sales, and look forward to the almost guaranteed Watch Dogs 2.  I will have my review of Watch Dogs completed by this weekend.
