Development On Watch Dogs Began In 2009 "Ubisoft has revealed that they began crafting the early stages of their newest IP, Watch Dogs, as far back as 2009." (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

It's amazing how many games take so long to be developed..

Square enix much :p

That's because they had to build from scratch. It's not like Activision or Ubisoft bringing CoD or AC every year.
mephman  +   883d ago
Kind of ironic that you mention Ubisoft there, since Watch Dogs is made by the same studio as Assassin's Creed.
ZBlacktt  +   883d ago
AC latest games have been graphic master pieces. I don't mind them at all. Deep story lines also.
rpd123  +   883d ago
I'd agree, except this is made by Ubisoft Montreal (people who made Assassin's Creed) and the gameplay seems pretty similar to AC games.

Not surprised due to the quality in that E3 tailer.
SuperSteve  +   883d ago
Ususally, when these games are first started, there's only a small team of guys working on the title (5-10). Then, as other projects are completed, more guys are brought in to help until there's finally enough working on it for the game to be considered in full production. Then you have the game coming out on every damn platform available, which requires even more programmers (usually small teams assigned to different platforms) due to the variances in system architecture (PS3 and it's "Rubik's Cube" according to Mark Cerny).

Hopefully now that PS4 and XBO are designed similar to a PC, we'll see new quality IPs coming at a much faster pace.

Wouldn't be surprised if they began releasing new watch dogs every year..
Supermax  +   883d ago
Wow now people hate how long games take to looking forward to a polished finished bug free game I don't hav a problem waiting there's plenty games out there to play.

Thats when they decided to milk AC and knew it wouldn't last long, so they had to make another IP that succeeds and start milking it, rinse and repeat.

Last long? AC is one of the top selling franchises out there..AC3 has sold 12 million so far. Ubi is probably the biggest publisher that continues to make new IP's. The Crew, Watch Dogs, and The Division.

Wouldn't last long? You're high. Every AC game has been in production for 3 or more years. They're not milking it. Only people who don't like the franchise or are very sad say so.
fsfsxii  +   883d ago
Thats the lie they tell you and you believe them, every AC has been mediocre after AC2
Lwhit6  +   883d ago
Regardless of how long this game took to make, it's going to be amazing. (I predict it to be better and more fun than the upcoming assassins creed)
Benjammin25  +   883d ago
That's how it should be. Look at TLOU. One of the very few games to be given over 3 years to make and it's easily one if the best games ever made. Watchdogs looks awesome too, because they took their time and came up with loads of cool ideas.
PigPen  +   883d ago
Watch Dogs Wii U, I think that is going to be amazing.
_QQ_  +   883d ago
Gamepad features done right>Graphics, anyday.But if the gamepad isn't used well its a PC buy.

So Watchdogs copied Persons of Interest? or POI copied Watchdogs?
ThePsychoEwok  +   882d ago
Person of interest was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this game. I love them both and will be buying Watch Dogs.
ajax17  +   883d ago
I keep on having dreams I'm playing Watch Dogs. I seriously want this game!!!
