French video game developer Ubisoft‘s sales for the renowned and brand new Tom Clancy’s The Division have skyrocketed. Both physical and digital copies worth about $330 million have been sold in just the first five days post its release, breaking an all-time record in new video game franchise history. The post-apocalyptic title, released back on March 8th, has already been labelled as Ubisoft’s best-selling title to date.
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. 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.”
