The wait is almost over. After making the tough decision to delay Watch Dogs in order to give this innovative and ambitious open-world game the polish it deserves, Ubisoft is pleased to announce the release date. Watch Dogs will be available on May 27, 2014, for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. (Watch Dogs on Wii U will be available at a later date, still to be determined.)
But a release date isn’t enough. We’ve read your comments on social media – including right here on the UbiBlog – and we know you’re famished for more info (and right now, thank you very much). The good news is, you won’t have to wait much longer. We’ve also got a full hands-on preview of the game, along with a detailed developer Q&A outlining why the game was delayed (including what, exactly, “polish” means in context of this delay). Elsewhere, the first round of stories and content about Watch Dogs will begin to appear in select media today (we’ll be sure to include links to these stories in Saturday’s UbiBlog Weekly). And back here on the UbiBlog we’ll begin to unleash a steady stream of new content up through release and beyond. For now, though, here’s another look at Aiden Pearce, with a new trailer that reveals why exactly Aiden became a vigilante in search of justice.
We’ve got some great stories, videos, features, interviews and more that we can’t wait to share with you. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please ask them in the comments below and we’ll do our best to answer them in the coming days, weeks and months. See you soon in Chicago…
