A highlight of Ubisoft’s recent financial report is its open world action-adventure video game, Watch Dogs. According to the developer, the new IP has shipped more than nine million units, which is a boost of one million units since July. In a statement, CEO Yves Guillemot said:

The very strong momentum we saw at the beginning of the fiscal year carried on into the second quarter and enabled us to once gain exceed our performance expectations. Ubisoft continued to capitalize on the popularity of new consoles, the successful launch of Watch Dogs, the quality of its back catalog and the considerable growth of the digital segment. Consequently, our operating income and cash flows improved significantly during the period.

Watch Dogs became the fastest-selling new IP when it launched in May, and despite Destiny stealing the show, the title still maintains that record in Western Europe.
