Watch Dogs sells 8 million

Watch Dogs has sold more than eight million units, according to Ubisoft. 

In a first-quarter financial report today, Ubisoft announced the impressive number and credited it in part for the sales exceeding its stated targets. The announcement states those are sell-in figures. 

The number isn't entirely surprising, given that Watch Dogs broke Ubisoft's own internal records for new IP pre-orders and first-day sales, and first-week sales. 

"The success of Watch Dogs and the quality of our games portfolio presented at this year's E3 highlight our strategic positioning as well as our continuous drive for innovation, and affirm our long-term approach," CEO Yves Guillemot said in the announcement. "Watch Dogs is now well positioned as a major franchise and we will be able to replicate and build on its success in the coming years."
