Watch Dogs


 

Even before its release, Watch Dogs 2 is showing signs of weakness, receiving fewer pre-orders than developer Ubisoft had hoped.

Ubisoft announced in a recent talk with investors that the number of pre-orders for its upcoming tech-vigilante title, Watch Dogs 2 was lower than expected. However, IGN has reported that the publisher maintained a positive outlook on the situation, referring back to a similar situation that had occurred with Far Cry 3.

“People wanted to see if the game was up to standards,” said Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, referring to Far Cry 3‘s pre-orders and implying that Watch Dogs 2 was suffering a similar fate.

Guillemot reminded investors that while the title had received fewer pre-orders than expected, it still performed very well post-launch. However, it is uncertain whether Watch Dogs 2 will do so as well. Will the open-world hacktivist game succeed, or do the low numbers indicate a disappointing performance?

Is Watch Dogs 2 poised to be a big flop?

Do low pre-order numbers mean that Watch Dogs 2 has crashed before it's even booted up?
