Ubisoft revealed that the much anticipated Watch Dogs has now been delayed until 2014.
Watch Dogs was scheduled for release in November for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U plus the PS4 and Xbox One. Now the game will be due out in Spring 2014. No new release date was confirmed but hopefully it would arrive in April or so.
Are you sad that Watch Dogs won’t be out this year?
Ubisoft released the following statement for the cause of Watch Dog’s delay:
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 Autumn 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.
