Ubisoft’s upcoming open world action-adventure stealth game, Watch_Dogs is the most pre-ordered new IP in Ubisoft’s history, according to Senior VP, Geoffroy Sardin.
“We are seeing tremendous excitement for the new Watch Dogs game, said Michael van den Berg, vice president of merchandising at GameStop International.
In fact, Watch Dogs is the highest pre-ordered next-generation console game to date. It is on track to be one of the top selling video games across all consoles in 2014.”
Ubisoft added that Watch Dogs is “the most pre-ordered new IP in the entire industry this year”. The publisher expects to sell over 6.3 million copies of the game, outselling Assassin’s Creed (2007).
“These strong pre-orders are a clear indication of players’ anticipation and excitement for Watch Dogs,” said Geoffroy Sardin, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at Ubisoft.
The teams have worked tirelessly to ensure that players will enjoy a top quality game with enormous scope, and we can’t wait to get the game into their hands.”
Watch_Dogs will release on May 27, 2014 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. A Wii U release will follow at a later date.
