“These strong pre-orders are a clear indication of players’ anticipation and excitement for Watch Dogs,” says Geoffroy Sardin, Senior VP Sales and Marketing, Ubisoft.

“The teams have worked tirelessly to ensure that players will enjoy a top quality game with enormous scope, and we can’t wait to get the game into their hands.”

“We are seeing tremendous excitement for the new Watch Dogs game,” says Michael van den Berg, vice president of Merchandising at GameStop International.

“In fact, Watch Dogs is the highest pre-ordered next-generation console game to date. It is on track to be one of the top selling video games across all consoles in 2014.”

Watch Dogs will be released worldwide on May 27th for PlayStation 4 , PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, with a release on Wii U at a later date.
