Ubisoft has announced that Watch Dogs has sold over 8 million units. However, these numbers correspond to the number of copies sent to retailers, not the number of copies sold to consumers.
With this announcement, Watch Dogs has broke several records. Released in May, the title became the fastest-selling game in Ubisoft's history and the industry's fastest-selling new IP.
Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot has already commented this results "The success of Watch Dogs and the quality of our games portfolio presented at this year's E3 highlight our strategic positioning as well as our continuous drive for innovation, and affirm our long-term approach."
"Watch Dogs is now well positioned as a major franchise and we will be able to replicate and build on its success in the coming years. That expertise enables us to stand out from our competitors at the beginning of each console cycle and therefore to reach a new dimension."
Following its several delays, the Wii U version of the title is expected to be released this Autumn.
