Watch Dogs is Ubisoft's Most Pre-Ordered New IP Ever
Ubisoft has been making some big headlines today with Far Cry 4 and Tom Clancy's The Division, but now it's Watch Dogs' turn. Ubisoft has revealed that Watch Dogs is the most pre-ordered new IP in the company's history and the most pre-ordered new IP in the entire industry this year. Furthermore, it's the second-highest pre-ordered Ubisoft game ever, and GameStop International has stated that it's the retailer's top pre-ordered next-gen console game to date.
Analysts and some stock owners panicked when the delay was announced in October of last year, but gamers know better – they understand the industry and understand that the delay was for the better. Whether Watch Dogs lives up to the hype is still anyone's guess, but if the pre-order numbers are any indication, most gamers have kept the faith; myself included.
Watch Dogs is launching May 27, 2014, on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, with the Wii U version coming at an undisclosed later date. PC gamers can get the game free with the purchase of select NVIDIA GPUs, which may be necessary for some of you, considering the game's steep PC requirements.
