Just how popular is Watch Dogs? Ubisoft has said that it has shipped 9 million copies of the open-world hacking adventure game, detailing the massive number of titles in its recent earnings report.
The company posted a 65% increase in sales year-over-year, with $605 million being made in the first six months alone, compared to the $366 million it made in the same six-month period of last year. Ubisoft said that its back catalogue is still making big money, with games like Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, South Park: The Stick of Truth, Far Cry 3 and Rayman Legends helping it make $142 million from its back catalogue alone.
In the first week of Watch Dogs' release, Ubisoft sold 4 million copies, and reported that it had sold 8 million copies some three months ago now, so sales of the game are definitely slowing down.
