Watch Dogs is the UK’s Biggest New IP Launch Ever

Watch Dogs is breaking more sales records, now being reported as the biggest new IP launch ever in the UK.

Eurogamer reports that this record was previously held by L.A. Noire, which was dethroned by Ubisoft’s open-world title while also beating out the company’s previous best launch week sales for Assassin’s Creed III by more than 17%.

Watch Dogs is the 17th biggest launch in the UK with only games from Grand Theft Auto, FIFA, Call of Duty and Battlefield having ever sold more.

The vast majority of physical copies sold were for PlayStation 4 and the system itself saw a 94% increase in hard ware sales over the last week.
