I don’t know did anyone expected this, but apperently, The Division did very good, at least that’s what numbers says.
Ubisoft’s third-person shooter The Division generated more than $330 million worldwide in its first five days, representing a new record for the company and the industry overall for a new franchise during that time.
“The Division taking the top spot in the industry for first week sales of a new franchise is a tremendous achievement,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in a statement. “The Division is the latest example yet of our unique ability to deliver immersive gaming playgrounds that keeps players engaged and that they eagerly share with their friends and community.”
“On top of record-breaking sales, player engagement is the highest ever for any Ubisoft title, demonstrating, among other things, that our investments in our online infrastructure and services are paying off,” Ubisoft online services VP Stephanie Perotti said. “We are delivering an online experience that’s on par with the best in the industry, and that matches the quality and connectivity demanded by The Division and its players.”
