“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.” The development teams stated in a press release. “It is with this in mind that we’ve made the tough decision to delay the release until Spring 2014. …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.”
Watch_Dogs will put players in control of Aiden Pearce, brilliant hacker and former criminal. In the wake of family tragedy directly tied to his criminal past, Aiden will monitor, hack, and fight in near-future Chicago while he searches for justice.
Ubisoft is a company that consistently makes good on their announcements to polish their games. While this will be a disappointment for players eager to hack future Chicago on their freshly launched consoles, it’s sure to be worth the wait.
