Watch Dogs Has Sold Over 9 Million Copies In Five Months

By   /   Oct 31, 2014

Ubisoft has revealed that its open world action game, Watch Dogs has sold more than 9 million copies in just five months of its release. It is an incredible achievement for a new IP as new franchises are not welcomed by most of the players.

Watch Dogs was almost on everyone’s wish list after its first reveal at E3 2012, as it offered some stunning visuals and amazing gameplay.

However, the game’s release couldn’t live up to the demo that was shown in 2012, as developers ended up visually downgrading it, which didn’t sit well with a lot of PCs and next-gen console owners.

Despite the visual downgrade, the gameplay of Watch Dogs managed to impress as it combined the elements of stealth, shooting and hacking, providing a unique experience for the players.

In the game, you take control of Aiden Pearce, who is seeking revenge against the people that took out his niece.

After the game’s success in its initial month, Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot stated that he expects Watch Dogs to sell over 10 million copies by 2014’s end, and he has “great things” planned for the franchise.

The statement from Guillemot clearly hinted toward the sequel of the game and hopefully; it will not suffer a visual downgrade like the original.

Watch Dogs currently sits at an impressive score of 80 on Metacritic, and our reviewer called this new title from Ubisoft “A Remarkable Achievement”, giving it a score of 9/10.
