Watch Dogs Has Been Delayed Into Spring 2014

The delay includes all versions, per the following statement from the Watch Dogs team:
“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. (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Much respect to Ubi for delaying it instead of just releasing it broken or unfinished. I have plenty of free to plays to play on my PS4 until then anyway :)

GiggMan  +   844d ago
Yeah I agree with you. I'm glad I got the Killzone bundle from Amazon instead of the Watchdogs bundle. I wonder what will happen to those preorder bundles since the game is delayed?
admiralvic  +   844d ago
@ GiggMan

Considering it was never an official bundle... they would have shipped the system and then the game.

I'm gonna be the over emotional voice of NON-reason here and say "SCREW UBI". The one unique non-shooter for the launch of next-gen, and they can't make deadline. I'm pissed.

Don't know if it's an actual delay, or if they're not wanting to launch two huge sandbox properties at the same time. I can understand not wanting AC and WD coming out the same time since so much has been invested, and they will attract many of the same gamers with not enough time to play both, but damn... damn, damn, damn.

I really wanted this game on day one.
Razputin  +   844d ago
No clue why you got disagrees.

But, its true. I believe on top of it not being finished, this Holiday season is going to swarmed with a lot of games (like always).

I know for a fact all the parents who buy their kids games only (or specifically) on holidays will have a huge back catalog to fill, for those who didn't get them day one.

This is going to hurt!

A lot of people were looking forward to Watch Dogs, me included. And to leave until Spring 2014 (read June at the earliest) is crazy. There was massive hype over this game.

When it releases we will be all over next gen and other games and I think this game will suffer in sales. Not a way top treat your future customers - a month's notice.

Feel sorry for all the confusion this will cause on pre-orders. And I bet Sony must be well peeved. They were backing this game in a big way.
Blachek  +   844d ago
Sony probably pushed them to announce it as a 13 launch release to bolster presales before they admitted a delay. I would imagine the same thing across the boards for next-gen.
crxss  +   844d ago

MWong  +   844d ago
While it sucks that it wont be releasing on console launch day I am ok with this decision. UbiSoft wants to put out a quality introduction to their new IP. Wonder what details are they trying to fine tune.

thekhurg  +   844d ago
Yeah, plus it'll save me another $60 at launch, unless I swap it over to Assassin's Creed - but I'm not sure if I should.

From Amazon:

"All orders for the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle
will keep their place in line and we will fulfill the PlayStation 4
(without the Watch Dogs game) in accordance with your current delivery
estimate. We are working on adjusting these orders and will update you
as soon as we know more."
ABizzel1  +   843d ago
It makes more sense, why have two open world games from the same publisher compete with one another at the same time.

Assassin's Creed is the safe bet for launch, and Watch Dogs is better served spring 2014.
Enemy  +   843d ago
I bet this had to do more with the secret fact that the Xbox One port wasn't up to par with PS4.

FamilyGuy  +   843d ago
Wow, this is crazy news and the push back is s far from something meant to come out so soon.

Reminiscent of the Rayman delay and to a much lesser extent the note of InFamous SS not being a launch title.

They know what they're doing, they must really want to impress us so hopefully the quality of the end result really shows.
Gaming101  +   843d ago
If you're saddened by the delay of any game, seriously, you need to get a life and go outdoors. There's soooooo many games out there, expand your horizons if you're that much of a shut in.
Ashunderfire86  +   843d ago

Actually Gamestop and Amazon are honoring the bundle to just the PS4 system alone.
brodychet  +   843d ago
I'm gonna assume a big reason for the delay is the fact that everyone will still be playing GTA.
strifeblade  +   843d ago
I have been reading comments on 4 pages and i have seen more often than not people claiming to cancel their ps4 pre order or holding off to buy it when watchdogs or infamous comes out.

This is a huge blow to sony. No offense guys if its hard to hear this but ps4 launch is heavily reliant on third party games. Now people are only left with killzone, assassins creed, call of duty, and battlefield as AAA games. 3 first person shooters and a sandbox game. Not enough to sustain the ps4 purchase.

Other games that people are less optimistic about include knack (kiddy) and driveclub (arcade racer- looks meh from what i understand of ps4 gamers). When i was buying the ps4, i was buyin to play third party games (sorry but the first party save for killzone did not interest me.) Now i feel your pain, no games to play but loads of indies- i would hold off my pre order as well.

This is dangerous for ps4 because people holding off leaves more time for the x1 to impress and if watchdogs comes around titanfall, Gamers will be jumping ship.

I dont have to say this but in contrast the lineup from x1 which includes ryse (action- historic), dead rising 3 (zombie), forza (sim-racer), cod and bf (fps) killer instinct (fighting), and crimson dragon (shmup), ac4 (open world).

Damn what a nice variety- i am glad i am getting an x1.

You're incorrect. It WAS an official bundle.
STICKzophrenic  +   843d ago
While the delay is a bit disappointing, part of me is happy that now my decision of which to play first, ACIV:BF or Watch_Dogs, is decided for me lol. Both games seem like you can put a ton of hours into each, so now I can fully focus on Black Flag.

My dilemma next year, depending on release dates, will be inFAMOUS: Second Son or Watch_Dogs. Hopefully there will be some time between the two.

This is my concern, The bundle hopefully we can switch the game out they just reduce the price overall to just the console
GalacticEmpire  +   844d ago
Relax, there's plenty of other games at launch of either console and those bundles were not official Sony bundles so it's up to retailers to sort it out.

Not surprised. They were launching it close to Assassin Creed 4 launch... so they delayed Watch Dogs a few months. That way both games don't compete with each other sales wise on the same time period.

I'm all for them taking extra time to make a better game but why wait til just a month before release to decide to do this since they have been pushing this game so hard for over a year as a next gen release tittle, just seems strange to me.

This short of notice on a release tittle is not really cool.
kingduqc  +   844d ago
I just really hope it wasn't cause of the new consoles versions that they delayed it...
bowserone  +   844d ago
i doubt it was broken or unfinished. someone on ign made a good point( happens now and then) they probably saw how amazing gta 5 was for an open game and thought crap we cant release this next gen title when this old gen swan song knocked it out of the park. Most likely they went back and added in everything they wanted to originally have in the game to make it better but couldnt do to launch time constraints. You dont delay a game 6 months before launch because its unfinished or broken we would have heard about that long before now. of course ubisoft wont ever admit to this but i think its a good pov.

CJDUNCAN  +   844d ago
I don't think the delay is about the game being broken, but more so what's the best time to get more revenue. GTA V just released, and next month both new consoles release with the monster of COD. There's just not enough room for a plausible release.

Of course UBI will back ACIV over Watch_Dogs. It sucks though considering I was really looking forward to it, but now I'll just cancel that preorder, and pick up a used copy when it releases next year as my own little protest for delaying a game a few weeks from launch.
curtis92  +   844d ago
It's a business move... they want to spread out their profits between AC4 & WD. No reason to release same week. That's all it is.

In fairness, I can remember when the ps3 and 360 launched there were delays left right and centre (some of which never even saw the light of day again). Although I'm sure thats not the case here ha!
gillri  +   844d ago
For some reason I don't mind this, I just wanted them to make the best game possible and I always thought that such a huge open world game soonish after GTA 5 would lessen its impact

Im totally fine with this gen for a bit longer, and will get the PS4 sometimes next year

then it suddenly gets delayed . indefinitely.
delays of such AAA titles so close to release and for such a long period spells trouble.

had its own bundles for sale,
it should have been going gold anytime now....
what does a 6 month delay tell u?
did they just weeks before release decide they need 6 months to improve it?

Guys don't be stubborn. You are crazy to think ubi is prepping a current gen release for 2014. this gen is over, save your pennies, its time to the upgrade.
OrangePowerz  +   844d ago
With the amount of current gen consoles on the market it would be a very stupid idea to not launch on current gen as well because they would loose a lot of profit.

I`m going to get a next console console in November and would never ever play the game on current gen, but a crap load of people will not upgrade for the next 12-18 months a continue to buy and play games on PS3 and 360. we will still see next Christmas a large amount of games that come out for next and current gen simply because the market is huge.
heliumhead2030  +   844d ago
Dude you guys are not thinking this through your just stating your genius based off of install base and not considering a bunch of other factors. This game isn't going to sell 20 million no matter the install base. THINK HARD

yeah, why release a game on platforms that have a combined install base of 150 million, when you can scrap those and release on platforms that by spring will have like 5-6 million combined..

That's great business logic right there.

Glad you don't have a say in how these companies are run.
Rubberlegs  +   844d ago

That's the PS3 version. They have said countless times this is coming out for current gen systems but it will be downgraded compared to next-gen/PC versions.

I'm not surprised at all with the delay with the lack of new footage and all the hype they have been putting behind AC4 and none of it for Watch Dogs.
vishmarx  +   844d ago
watchdogs wasnt hyped?
Rubberlegs  +   844d ago
I never said it wasn't. I'm talking marketing hype with ad's and commercials which you see lot with AC4. You weren't seeing much with Watch Dogs and now we know why.
CJDUNCAN  +   844d ago
UBI didn't want to have Watch_Dogs surrounded by so much competition. That's what it seems like to me. And instead of being confident in their new IP, they decided to put it on ice in favor of the more well known ACIV.

I think they greatly erred with this though, a lot of AC fans that have been around from the beginning are burnt out on the series. Watch_Dogs was a burst of fresh air.
jaxx377  +   844d ago
With the install base of the PS3/X360 being roughly 150 to 160 million units it makes no sense whatsoever to delay the game 6 months and only release it on the Next gen systems that will have an install base of maybe 10 to 20 million combined by that time. They most likely delayed it due to current gen optimization and the need to release away fro AC/BF.
vishmarx  +   844d ago
its not selling more than 5 -6 million.
if 10 million ps3/xb1 sell combined..atleast 5 million get this this game for the lack of total titles annd because its gonna be great.
what makes you think that people wont hold off on current gen versions for the nex gen if their getting the systems anyway
jaxx377  +   844d ago
I definitely think there will be a lot of gamers that hold off. I know I am, but with that large of an install base it should sell more than enough units to more than justify the cost of optimizing the game to play on current gen systems. if it is as great as we all hope it to be. I just cant see them turning away profits like that from an overall business plan.
-Foxtrot  +   844d ago
I'd rather take this then AC4

I think this has more to do with the release of AC IV and Watchdogs at basically the same time. I mean if they want to capitalize on sales they would've done this from the start.

I am getting both Watchdogs and AC IV, and honestly, I can see this as a good thing. Too many open world games, would make it too time consuming and people would neglect one over the other for a few weeks/months.

Ubisoft is 'known' for delaying many games; the original Assassin's Creed got delayed several times, and that includes Splinter Cell: Conviction, which was delayed for almost three years. CMIIW.

However, if the delay means the game will be a masterpiece. That I don't mind.

Yup! I knew it. They're pushing the hell out of AC4, and it didn't make any sense to me for them to launch TWO open-world games around the same time.

This is a good thing, more time with other games, they'll get a larger audience next year when more folk can just walk into stores and grab consoles, and they have more time to work out jank, optimize, etc.

I have no complaints at this juncture.
DigitalRaptor  +   843d ago
Exactly what I was thinking.

It's a new IP, they now have more time to get it right. Plus, I'd rather play an open-world game that is fundamentally different to GTA V so soon after that's been out, since I've not even finished that game yet.

Assassin's Creed IV - now I no longer need to decide.

agreed, that's why I am waiting until late spring early summer before I pick up an XB1 or PS4. That way there will be a slew of titles available...

Damn, that was going to be my big launch game. Guess I'll have to pick something else.

II honestly thought this was going up against Assassin's Creed 4 but wow way to go UbisoftNiall I can pick up Assassin's Creed 4 instead of watch dogs

I'm calling it, GTA 5 panic! But it was kind of expected with such tight window release for an open-world game is never good. Especially an open world game that will release on as many different consoles as this one.

nice to know ubi are gonna get this right . at the same time i cant help feel disappointed that the release day on ps4 games has literally diminished down to ac4 and there being absolutely naff all else that appeals to me .xmas is looking bleak :-(
Rockstar paid them off since they knew Watch Dogs would win Game of the Year.

TLOU already won.
n4rc  +   844d ago
Lol... Its cute you think that..
Idba  +   844d ago

TLOU has already won because it did more than GTA V. GTA V is a awesome game, but its the fifth in its installment, while TLOU is the first.
n4rc  +   843d ago
That doesn't matter! Lol

For one... There is like 3-4 goty every year because every site declares their own..

GTA v was the biggest media release of all time... It sold more in its first day then tlou has to date..

Not going into my opinion that its a walking dead rip off.. Or I am legend.. Take your pick... But again, that's my opinion

I guess you all forgot about a little game called bioshock
testsubject  +   844d ago
Agreed, everyone forgets about Bioshock Infinite, that game is amazing
SuicideKing  +   843d ago
I guess you forgot about a little game called fuse...;)
DigitalRaptor  +   843d ago
@ SuicideKing

I wonder if anyone genuinely loves that game.
joefrost00  +   843d ago
Its funny cause its.the same ps fans are always the one hating on a third party game if they have a game in the running
My personal opinion have played and beat tlou and bioshock
Not trying to start anything but bioshock hands down
Half you all claiming tlou havent even played bioshock
Half way through.gta5 now

Well. Im most likely canceling my PS4 preorder bundle. The only games I wanted are Battlefield 4 and Watchdogs. I can wait for Battlefield 4 till the spring.

I'm putting you down for an 'agree' because I think you were 'disagreed' simply because you're not gonna get the PS4 on 'day one.'

I'm sticking to current gens until 'adult christmas' A.K.A. tax time.

What's going to happen with the bundles?
sigfredod  +   844d ago
WTF???? i can't think of one single reason to delay a game less than a month of release, a game that was about to going gold, if they didn't like the status of the game they could have anounce the delay way before, i'm ssure this is a bussiness reason, shame on you Ubi, i almost order the watchdog bundle, glad i choose killzone
Redempteur  +   843d ago
they tried to go head one against GTA5 but they realised that this close to each other, watch dogs ( being a new IP ) would have much more problem to suceed , given that creed 4 is also there ...

this is just a logical conclusion.
lifeisgamesok  +   844d ago
Well this just made my launch lineup decision easier
DoomeDx  +   844d ago
What game are you getting now? :)
lifeisgamesok  +   844d ago
I have Ryse and Dead Rising 3 paid off. I'm thinking NBA 2k14 or Forza maybe both
JohnApocalypse  +   844d ago
WOW, and only a month away
