GTA V is an amazing game and continues to be played religiously by PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers. At the same time, others are already bored of the game and are instead looking forward to the next big open world game – Watch Dogs.
Many gamers are expecting big things from Ubisoft’s main game in 2014 and it looks like the publisher and developer are supremely confident as well.
We’ve heard this week that Ubisoft is already confident enough to say that Watch Dogs will go on to be “one of the biggest selling new IPs in recent memory”. This is a bold statement at this stage when you consider that GTA V broke literally all sales records when it went on sale in September 2013.
Ubisoft’s Wayne Greenwell has been speaking about the reception for the game so far, admitting that pre-order numbers for Watch Dogs have been “hugely promising” so far. With a May 27 Watch Dogs release date locked down, we’ve actually read a lot of feedback from gamers who truly believe that Watch Dogs could end up being more successful than GTA V.
GTA V was crazy but Watch Dogs is gonna be insane

Watching the 'Watch_Dogs featuring NVIDIA Technologies' video and then reading this "This looks amazing. I'm sure it looks better than GTA V

While some will obviously disagree with this claim, we think it is fantastic that the choice is there for everyone to go out and give Watch Dogs a try if GTA V feels a little stale. The graphics for the game are looking absolutely stunning at the moment, especially for those that have a PC rig and are planning to play Watch Dogs on ultra settings.
While analysts will ultimately have their say in the weeks to come, let us know what you personally think about the inevitable Watch Dogs Vs GTA V sales battle.
Have you pre-ordered Watch Dogs and fully expect the game to be at least as good as GTA V, if not better?
