Watch Dogs, the much anticipated next-gen launch game that was delayed into 2014, is closer to a release date. No, we don’t actually have a day or month that you can mark on your calendar, but we have some seasonal guidelines.
When Ubisoft did their conference call, they confirmed that the title is still on track to launch on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC somewhere between April and June. Great, so we have a three month window of opportunity. It’s way better than nothing, and we still aren’t even sure if the Xbox One will be launched in South Africa by then (although rumor has it that it won’t).
The Nintendo fans among you may have noticed that the Wii U isn’t on the list of confirmed platforms for Watch Dogs in the April-June session. Many are worried that it won’t be coming to Nintendo’s struggling console, with rumors abounding after it was left off Nintendo’s release calendar. However, Ubisoft has confirmed that it will be coming to Wii U, just a bit later:
We made the difficult decision to further delay the release of Watch Dogs on Wii U to focus the team’s resources where they could have the broadest possible benefit for both our customers and Ubisoft
Excellent! So Watch Dogs will be coming to all platforms eventually. Now we just need a set date so that I can put it on my calendar and stare at it to help build my personal hype. I really am excited about this game, although the constant delays certainly are worrying. And hey – how will this affect their movie schedule?
