Destiny Didn’t Beat Watch Dogs’ Launch in Western Europe, Says Ubisoft

September 24, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


While Destiny may have become the biggest new IP launch on a worldwide basis (and in the UK), Ubisoft wants you to know that Watch Dogs still holds the new IP record in western Europe.

This news comes from their press release today for the new Watch Dogs Bad Blood DLC, where Ubisoft states:

Bad Blood builds upon what helped make Watch Dogs a record-breaking success. The game became the industry’s fastest-selling new IP in its first week – a record that still stands in all western European territories combined – by delivering a potent combination of action-adventure missions, seamless multiplayer modes, and open-world exploration.

Ubisoft’s source on this is “GfK retail data as of September 14, 2014. All platforms without PC, in UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Benelux, Scandinavia, Austria.”

It’s the little victories, right?
