It appears Ubisoft has a lot of faith in its next big game. They have even gone so far as to say that Watch Dogs could be one of the best selling games of the year. This is all given the high rate of pre orders and interest surrounding the new open world game. They have even said that Watch Dogs could be one of the best selling new IP’s in recent memory.
Ubisoft’s Wayne Greenwell told MCV:
Excitement for the product remains incredibly high and gamers are desperate to finally get their hands on the title. This is reflected in our pre-orders which are hugely promising for a new IP and highlights the enthusiasm that has surrounded the product since it was first unveiled to the world.
With Watch Dogs, Ubisoft is building a new blockbuster brand to stand alongside other top tier triple-A titles and we expect it to be not only one of the best selling new IPs in recent memory, but also one of the best selling titles throughout 2014.
Given all the advertising for the game I see Watch Dogs doing incredibly well and perhaps meeting Ubisoft’s expectations. Watch Dogs is going to be incredible but we will just have to wait and see if the predictions come true.
