Watch Dogs Delayed Until Spring 2014!
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
It seems we have been hit with a major blow to the next-gen launch schedule, no longer will eager gamers be able to play one of the hottest games of the year, at least not this year.
Ubisoft may have delayed their game, this makes me sad, but also happy at the same time. It’s always nice to have great new games to play, but if the team need the extra time to put the polish on their title and make it better, then I’m happy to wait.
The following is a statement directly from the Watch Dogs development teams announcing the delay of all versions to Spring 2014:
“Our ambition from the start with Watch_Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming. It is with this in mind that we’ve made the tough decision to delay the release until Spring 2014.
We know a lot of you are probably wondering ‘why now?’ We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and during other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion is what drives us.
We can’t wait to see you in Chicago next Spring. We are confident you’ll love this game as much as we love working on it.”
With many gamers already having pre-ordered bundles of next-gen consoles along with this game, Amazon and other retailers are said to be working closely with Ubisoft in fixing the issue, long story short is, you will not be playing this game this year, regardless of what console bundle you pre-ordered.
Thank you Ubisoft for providing us with this information.
