Ubisoft have announced that Tom Clancy’s The Division has broken the company’s day-one sales record.
The Division was released yesterday on Xbox One, PS4 and PC and the third-person action-RPG has sold more copies in its first 24 hours than any game in Ubisoft’s history — snatching the title away from 2014’s Watch Dogs.
“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,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO, Ubisoft. “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.”
The publisher did not announce any specific sales figures, but were quick to point out that they now have three of the most successful game brand launches in the history of the industry — Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs and The Division.
Tom Clancy’s The Division is now available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
