The Division achieves 'record-breaking' sales in first 24 hours

Just how many copies did it sell? That's a good question.


Ubisoft has revealed Tom Clancy’s The Division has achieved record-breaking sales for the company, selling more copies in its first 24 hours than any other previous title in its history.

“We’re extremely happy with The Division’s record-breaking launch,” said Ubisoft Massive managing director David Polfeldt. “The Division really represents Ubisoft at its best, with the Massive team and all the teams at our associate studios working at maximum capacity in highly-productive collaboration to deliver an incredibly innovative and entertaining new game.”

The Division also set records for Ubisoft for the total digital full game sales in a single day across all current-gen platforms and PC.

“The launch of The Division is a tremendous achievement for Ubisoft, and demonstrates our unrivalled capacity to create fantastic new game brands and transform them into entertainment blockbusters,” said Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot. “This is a momentous day for Ubisoft, but more importantly it marks the start of millions of players’ enduring engagement in The Division’s game world, which we are confident they will love.”

While Ubisoft revealed The Division sold very well for the company, it doesn’t give any numbers as to how many copies it actually sold. Considering just how popular the game is right now, it’s strange to see a company gloat about its game sales without providing any definite numbers. It’s not uncommon, but it’s still strange.

      I'm glad they did the free open beta or I would have never given it a shot. And with the sales, hopefully it compels them to put more man hours and money into and make the DLC awesome to convert more non-DLC owners into owners.

        Plus churning out some decent content in between big the DLCs would be nice.

      so far so good, it's fun enough - let's see if they can keep it going. PC looks like it's vibrant, and could have some legs if they put in new missions and stuff for co-op and matchmaking... it needs VARIETY or else it's gonna star wars itself and die very quickly.
