Kicking off the day with a little bit of sad news, with Ubisoft announcing that their Next Gen open world the highly anticipated Watch Dogs has been delayed 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.”
This is a little disappointing. Considering Watch Dogs was set to be a next gen launch title, in little over a month. Over a month, but it is with the games best interest at heart.
“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 each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.”
Looks like we are going to have to wait a little longer, until we get to roam around the high tech city of Chicago with Aiden Pearce. I think it’s for the best though. I would rather a better experience then get a game a little earlier.
Watch Dogs was announced at E3 2012, surprising a lot of people and earning many, many, best of E3 awards.
