Congrats are in order for the folks at Ubisoft for the success of their outbreak/doorway-griefing simulator The Division, as they have announced that their latest game has broken their highest sales record for the first 24 hour period since release.

“The launch of The Division is a tremendous achievement for Ubisoft, and demonstrates our unrivalled capacity to create fantastic new game brands and transform them into entertainment blockbusters,” said Yves Guillemot, CoFounder and CEO, Ubisoft. “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.”
