After a rather successful launch, Ubisoft has today announced that their latest open-world title Watch Dogs is now the company's fastest-selling game in its history, selling more copies in 24 hours than any other of their past titles.
“I once said that the buzz around Watch Dogs was driven by the incredible passion of our early fans,” said creative director Jonathan Morin on the UbiBlog
. “Today we broke the record for the biggest first-day sales in Ubisoft history."
While exact figures are still unknown, earlier in the year Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed during a conference call that the publisher and developer hoped to sell over 6 million copies of Watch Dogs. This was based on past shipment sale for the original Assassin's Creed, which later spawned the rather successful series.
