Chief financial officer Alain Martinez revealed the sales guidance during an earnings call this week. He also reiterated that Watch Dogs, also delayed to 2014, is expected to sell around 6 million copies.
"In the case of The Crew, as you know it's a driving game, so it's more limited potential," Martinez said about The Crew compared to Watch Dogs. "We generally had spoken to about over 2.5 million units. We'll see where we go. And we believe that we have nice potential for the future."
Martinez also addressed sales expectations for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. He said the game is not expected to match Assassin's Creed III's 12 million units shipped figure, but come in somewhere above 10 million copies.
"The previews are exceptional and the game is really coming along very well. We hope it can do a lot this year," Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot added.
