Game News: Watch Dogs 2 a HUGE FAILURE?

It's been a bad holiday for sequels. Games that you think would be busy building their swimming pools of money but actually some of the biggest franchises of the year are... not doing so great. Everyone, welcome Watch Dogs 2 to that club.

    Oh man, that is such a shame. Watch Dogs 2 is one of the most fun games I've played, and there's plenty to do. Personally, it's the smoothest running Ubisoft game I've played to date. No multiplayer problems, no glitches, etc. I hope more people give it a shot, but Ashley's right in that people are still feeling the pain of the first game, hence the low numbers.

    It's pretty much impossible to say how well WD2 is doing, since it got a real triple whammy of negative variables compared to the first.


    As mentioned, PC hasn't released for WD2, but no where seems to be noting that WD1 the PC version launched same day as console.


    Then there's the mentioned trend towards digital, which they don't give the numbers for.


    Finally, again it was mentioned WD2 is launching during a kinda poor time for a game..but WD1 WAS launched during a far better time for sales ( May I think it was. )


    So, you can easily see it's baseless to compare WD1 and WD2 early sales numbers. That 80% difference could easily be up to the above 3...or it could indeed be performing poorly.

    I purchase all of my games online, why are these sales not tracked?

    I'm not sure about anyone else, but the only game on this list I care about is Dishonored and I've got a backlog to burn through that still includes a few 360 games.

    Ya I agree with Jon.  Typically get better sales if the game works.

    Watchdogs 2 is a lot better than the first one overall. I do wish the story was a bit better because even though it is better than Watchdogs 1 and the characters are fun it still feels like a collection of completely unrelated missions rather than one cohesive story. I do want Watchdogs to succeed because I feel like they can make a really amazing game still.

    I mean... if you produce a shite game and over-hype it, then people are gonna be a little less than enthused for the sequel.
