Posted on the Ubi Blog just a little while ago. Ubisoft have stated that Watch Dogs will be delayed till Spring 2014.
Gary Steinman Communications Manager stated on Ubisoft Blog.
“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.”
I can see the reasoning behind the slight delay, and I for one agree with them. For too long many titles have been shipped with faults or bugs which are they fixed with a day one patch. Which only infuriates many of the gaming world because the game should work out of the box. This may upset some people as they were hoping to play Watch Dogs before the end of the year but unfortunately that isn’t possible.
