Watch Dogs To Sell 6 Million, Limited Edition Announced
New IPs can be a tough sell but when they're as anxiously anticipated as Watch Dogs, sales expectations will be high.
After successfully exciting the hell out of everyone at E3, Ubisoft has upped their sales estimates for Watch Dogs. The publisher now expects it to sell around 6.2 million copies, which would be a little better than the original Assassin's Creed.
Said a Ubisoft director:
"What is true is that three months ago when we announced our results, we were kind of referencing that we, in our plan, we had built up Watch Dogs with expectation slightly below what Assassin's Creed 1 did when it was first released--and it was 6.2 million. So after E3, what we said today was that we do feel that we can expect…slightly above the 6.2 million that Assassin's Creed did."
They also revealed a special Limited Edition, which will retail for $130. This will include a steelbook case, 9" Aiden Pearce statue, a vigilante mask, the official soundtrack and an 80-page artbook. Sounds like a worthy addition to your collection! Watch Dogs launches on November 19 for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will be launch titles for their respective systems. I want the next-gen version, damnit.
