Watch Dogs Sells 4 Million Copies in First Week

By   /   Jun 3, 2014

All the controversies Watch Dogs had to deal with, had little effect on players who were just waiting for the moment to charge around Chicago as Aiden and use his skills to hack into the city itself.

Following a week of its release, Ubisoft has today revealed the game to have had already sold more than 4 million copies. Those are terrific numbers by any standard. The developer however did not break down that figure between all the platforms.

“With such strong sales momentum and positive feedback from gamers, Watch Dogs has positioned itself as the must-have game of the moment” Ubisoft marketing boss Tony Key said in a statement.

Watch Dogs also managed to sell more copies in its first 24 hours than any other Ubisoft game before it. With all this success, it would be pretty obvious to say that we have here a franchise and Ubisoft would already be smashing their heads on thinking new ideas for the installment.

“We’re really proud of this achievement,” said Key. “And we are confident that the Watch Dogs brand has a promising future.”

Ubisoft however did not fail to disappoint the PC community with a wonky windows version that is plagued with issues and fails to run smoothly on its maximum settings on systems that are more than capable. A patch is in the works that is said to fix all of that.

Watch Dogs is now available on the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
