Breaking down the sales by platform, the game sold best on the PlayStation 4 with 715,773 units sold (76%), compared to 222,069 units sold on the Xbox One (24%). 


Breaking down the sales by region, the game sold best in Europe with 385,121 units sold (41%), compared to 381,276 units sold in the US (41%). Looking more closely at Europe, the game sold an estimated 78,244 units in the UK, 66,287 units in Germany, and 65,627 units in France.

too bad because the game is awesome, but that's what happens when your past is disappointing.

Wow, 26%. Ubisoft must be disappointed by that, even if they are likely to make back the budget over time.

Ubisoft having some pretty weak releases lately, might wake upper management to put more time into their games now

bad sales figures. I find Watch Dogs 2 boring, sorry. The story and characters are so boring -.- The gameplay is..well.. "okay". GTA 5 was awesome, Yakuza 6 is incridble. Both games have much more development effort and love in detail from the developers. UbiSoft is so disappointing. I hope, Watch Dogs 3 in 2 years is better than the first&second Watch Dogs -.-

Look at the bright side. The game was pretty good, and was WAY better than the original. Of course, people will now complain about sales, as they need something to whine about

This may be the (slow) death of WD 2. Ubi is aiming for the big tenthpole franchises at this point.

Lol. And only 220K on Xbox.

Still that is way more total than I expected. At least it's doing alright. Looks like a way better game than the original.
