Ubisoft might be on to a winner here where Watch_Dogs is concerned. In fact, the upcoming title is said to be the most pre-ordered new IP (Intellectual Property) in Ubisoft history, and not only that, it also makes history by being the second-most pre-ordered Ubisoft game ever, all the while taking the gong for being the most pre-ordered new IP in the entire gaming industry for this year so far. Granted, there is still slightly more than half a year left to go, but this does not detract from the fact that Watch_Dogs looks set to be a massive success.
Not only that, we also did bring you word earlier today that Watch_Dogs has already gone gold after taking over five years of development, and is on its way to the manufacturers to be packaged and eventually, make its way to store shelves.
Geoffroy Sardin, Senior VP Sales and Marketing at Ubisoft, shared, “These strong pre-orders are a clear indication of players’ anticipation and excitement for Watch Dogs. 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.”
One thing’s for sure, it would be interesting to see whether there will be anyone out there who would take “sick leave” when May 27th arrives later this month as Watch_Dogs appears on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC platforms.
