The Watch Dogs marketing team should be congratulated for going above and beyond with its job. Server issues that prevented players from logging in to play the game or receive their exclusive content and poor PC optimization didn't stop gamers from snapping up copies of the game. The Watch Dogs hype train had far too much momentum to be offset by negative user reviews.
Ubisoft reported a week ago that Watch Dogs had sold over 1 million copies within the first 24 hours, making it the best-selling game from the publisher in one week. Now, the publisher is reporting that Watch Dogs had sold 3 million more copies the other six days of the week. Not too shabby at all.
"The results we achieved in the first week of launch are amazing and prove Ubisoft's commitment to developing new blockbuster IP and thoroughly new-gen experiences," Ubisoft UK sales director Darren Bowen said in a statement.
No doubt, Watch Dogs's great sales numbers has secured its spot as a Ubisoft franchise.
