Tom Clancy's The Division is not only Ubisoft's biggest-ever launch, but also the best-selling new game franchise in an opening week, the publisher has announced.
This means the team-shooter outsold Activision and Bungie's Destiny during its launch week, grossing more than $330 million worldwide in its first five days.
"The Division taking the top spot in the industry for first week sales of a new franchise is a tremendous achievement. We are very proud of our teams, and humbled by and thankful for the millions of players who are giving us their feedback and support," said Yves Guillemot, CEO and Co-Founder, Ubisoft. "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."
Ubisoft also points out record player engagement, with more than 1.2 million peak concurrent users over the weekend, and more than 100 million hours spent playing the game online during the launch week.
