5 Reasons why Watch Dogs was delayed, probably

MMGN: While the unfortunate delay of Watch Dogs is worst for Sony, due to launch bundles and exclusive content, it’s terrible for everyone. Watch Dogs was one of the most promising Wii U titles of the year — not that competition was fierce — and, if we’re honest, it was one of the most promising games in the Xbox One’s repertoire as well.

Everyone’s very angry with the Frenchies for ruining, or delaying, their fun. Why have they done this to us? (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

GTAV, is the reason.

Beat me to it.

Yeah, i bet watch dogs world isn't even half the size of what gta5 is and its a current gen game!

i don't even like GTA5 that much and it's not my GOTY
but when i saw the news about Watch_dogs delay
all what come to my mind was this:

*Ubisoft dev : we played GTA5 and sh*t our self*

it's really hard for them to do well in a year that have two of highest rated games this gen that already contenders for GOTG not just GOTY
(the last of us and GTA5)

i think competition will be insane this holiday with all software coming out.
PS4 buyers will do it mainly for Killzone.
WarThunder  +   845d ago

But i think their biggest reason is to avoid competing with themselves.

or this

"6. To remove half the game then release it as DLC."
Sideras  +   845d ago
Whatever the reason it will never hurt to delay the game. But yeah, I was wondering why they'd release their two biggest titles on the same day a couple of months ago.
MYSTERIO360  +   845d ago
*sigh* i would of hoped assassins creed 4 would of been delayed then this, i was so looking forward to it
Noctis  +   845d ago
these five reasons are facts, probably
dcj0524  +   845d ago
Too much competition. Like 10 big name games are launching. No room for new ips.

Lambent azure optics narrowed into slits as he pulled against him by the shirt. "Well, why wouldn't I? Coming here dressing sexy like that." In tone, his digitals tapped along the uniquely grafted flesh in which she'd use sit on, the thought of such the perfect option came to play.

wow whats next they delay metal gear 5 because of GTA 5 ?
jessupj  +   845d ago
Surprised they didn't mention one of the reasons being "getting the xbone version optimised enough to be on parity to the PS4 version".

Considering everything we'd heard so far, I don't think that's a stretch at all.

But considering it is quite a long delay it's most likely making it more 'next gen' for both PS4 and xbone, as well as PC. It will also benefit from not having to compete with other high profile games.

Ubi might pleasantly surprise me though. They might actually take advantage of the PS4 hardware like they should, instead of dumbing it down just for the utterly ridiculous reason of aiming for parity.

Weird wording for title. (5 possible reasons for Watch Dogs' delay) would sound better.
LEOPARD1030  +   845d ago
V reasons.

josephayal  +   845d ago
Forza5 is the reason
WarThunder  +   845d ago
No, Ouya is the reason :P
ritsuka666  +   845d ago
Another one: People still not hyped for this game.
aLiEnViSiToR  +   845d ago
Only reason is "To make more money" cuz GTA V took it all xD

ps: Maybe GTA V PC version coming this year was the reason also ?!
SITH  +   844d ago
Clearly Assassin's Creed is the reason. Ubisoft is bumping heads releasing a popular game, and new IP at the same time.
Atomicjuicer  +   843d ago
Like Rayman on wii u, this is a business move that is intended to hurt everyone except Ubisoft.

However, it will have the opposite effect.
