After already becoming the “most pre-ordered new IP in Ubisoft’s history and the most pre-ordered new IP in the entire industry this year,” Watch Dogs, which launched yesterday, has sold more copies than any previous title in Ubisoft history during its first 24 hours on the market.

Creative Director Jonathan Morin had this to say about the achievement:

I once said that the buzz around Watch Dogs was driven by the incredible passion of our early fans. Today we broke the record for the biggest first day sales in Ubisoft history. I can never say it enough: thank you everyone! We love you all for your passion and your creativity.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot added:

Watch Dogs is an amazing achievement and our teams should be proud that the creativity, innovation and long hours they invested in making this game are paying off. It’s great to see so many customers enjoy playing the game, and it shows that Watch Dogs has cracked the code for developing a new blockbuster IP and a thoroughly new-gen experience.

Despite the commercial success, there have been numerous issues with Watch Dogs (check out our review) and UPlay, some of which are still being ironed out.
