Sorry, Watch Dogs. You’re number two now.
So Tom Clancy’s The Division is doing really well for itself.
According to a press release from Ubisoft, the game has had the most launch-day sales for any Ubisoft game ever, breaking the record set by Watch Dogs two years ago. It also managed to set that same record across all digital platforms too. Concrete numbers haven’t been released, but even then wow that’s a lot of sales.
The Division also joins Destiny, Watch Dogs, and Assassin’s Creed as one of the most successful new IP launches in history. I’m not sure if The Division should count as a new IP if they’re shoving it under the Tom Clancy umbrella, but I’m not the guy who makes the rules.
If you’re waiting for reviews to be up before taking the plunge, Chris and I are both working hard on the review and PC port report for The Division (you can read why they’re not up already here). You can read Chris’ preliminary thoughts in his review in progress if you can’t wait!
