Ubisoft’s long-awaited open world game Watch Dogs will be delayed, so gamers who were planning to play it next month will have to wait a little bit more as the new release date has been set for spring of 2014, for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and PC. The announcement was made by Ubisoft’s Communications Manager Gary Steinman:
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 each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.
