All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what’s happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it’s not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.
In Watch_Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (ctOS) – and it controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents.
After setting a pre-order record, a Ubisoft 24 hour sales record, Watch Dogs has now sold-through more than 4 million copies in its first week, positioning it as the best-selling new IP at launch across the video game industry.
Watch Dogs is now also the company’s best-selling game ever in week one.
“With such strong sales momentum and positive feedback from gamers, Watch Dogs has positioned itself as the must-have game of the moment” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “We’re really proud of this achievement, and are confident that the Watch Dogs brand has a promising future.”
