Anyone who has been anticipating the release of Ubisoft’s “Watch Dogs” will unfortunately have to wait a few more months than expected.
The open-world game was scheduled to be released in November, tying in with the release of the Xbox One & PS4, but has now been delayed to a Spring 2014 release.
Whilst it may be a disappointment for the many people intending to play it in just over a month’s time, the tough decision was made with good intentions, it was explained today in a statement from the Watch Dogs development team:
“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.”
