Watch Dogs, which was due to be released in November across current and next gen platforms has been delayed until Spring 2014.
Ubisofts full statement is below, however, it remains to be seen what happens to people who pre-ordered the Watch Dogs PS4 Bundle as it remains to be seen whether they will now get a Solus Console or if their bundle will be delayed until the spring. Ubisoft so far are (quite rightly, as it’s Sony who handle the bundles) dodging the question. Sony have yet to comment on the issue.
“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,” Ubisoft said.
“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.
“We can’t wait to see you in Chicago next Spring. We are confident you’ll love this game as much as we love working on it.”
