Ahead of it’s May 27th release, Ubisoft has revealed that Watch Dogs has set a new record. According to Ubisoft, Watch Dogs is now the most pre-ordered new IP ever and the second most pre-ordered Ubisoft game.
Senior VP of Marketing and Sales, Geoffrey Sardin states that this news is “a clear indication of players’ anticipation and excitement for Watch Dogs.” Gamestop’s VP of Merchandising weighed in on the matter expressing that the world-famous retailer is “seeing tremendous excitement for the new Watch Dogs game.”
Also, during a company financial call last week, Ubisoft announced that they expect Watch Dogs to sell over 6.3 million units, targeting numbers similar to the original Assassin’s Creed.
