Ubisoft has announced that Tom Clancy’s The Division has broken the company’s sales record for most copies sold in the first 24 hours of release. Unfortunately, the company didn’t announce any specific sales figures for the game, which is available on PS4, PC and Xbox One, but the count did include digital sales.
Ubisoft did also claim to have three of the most successful new IP launches in the games industry: Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs, and now The Division.
Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot said of the launch:
“The launch of The Division is a tremendous achievement for Ubisoft, and demonstrates our unrivaled capacity to create fantastic new game brands and transform them into entertainment blockbusters. 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.”
