The Division is doing rather well for Ubisoft.

The company announced today sold more copies during its first 24 hours of availability than any game in company history.

It also set a new single-day company record for a full digital downloadable game across PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“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,” said company co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot.

“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.”

No concrete figures were provided, but the company will likely provide an estimate or at least a shipped figure once more sales information comes in from retailers.

The Division is currently available on Xbox One, PC, and PS4 and you can find out more on the game through our page hub.
