Ubisoft announced that The Division has sold more copies in its first 24 hours than any other title in the company's history.

The Division has sold more copies in its first 24 hours than any other game in Ubisoft’s history, according to a post on the company’s blog.

Ubisoft didn’t share figures, so all we can draw from this is that it outsold Watch Dogs, which previously held the record for sales in its first day, and any title in the Assassin’s Creed series. Ubisoft also shared that total digital full game sales of The Division also set new, single-day company records across PC, Xbox One, PS4.

Co-founder and CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, expressed his delight at the news. “The launch of The Division is a tremendous achievement for Ubisoft, and demonstrates our unrivaled capacity to create fantastic new game brands and transform them into entertainment blockbusters,” he said.

“This is a momentous day for Ubisoft, but more importantly it marks the start of millions of players’ enduring engagement in The Division’s game world, which we are confident they will love.”

The Division is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can now win a The Division Sleeper Edition Collector’s Set.
