“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.”
Communications Manager, Gary Steinmann posted the announcement on the Ubisoft blog today, it was posted on behalf of the development team behind the game.
Watch Dogs was to be one of the launch titles for both next gen consoles the PS4 and Xbox One next month as well as it’s release on current gen systems – the news is a blow to many fans who will now have to wait until Spring 2014 before they will be able to play the game.
“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.”
