Amazon has been known for leaking the release dates on several high profile games in the past, release dates that turned out to be accurate. Now it seems that they’re at it again, this time with the highly anticipated Watch Dogs from Ubisoft.
Evident placeholder. June 30 is the end of a quarter.
I don't believe Amazon has ever really leaked a release date. Any date they show is merely a placeholder.
But still June though? That's a horrible date. Wow.
What is it about the 'multiplatform' launch title for the PS4 that needed another 8 months of development time?
That's a Monday. It's a placeholder. Can we NOT make articles about this stuff?
Since Watch Dogs is said to vome in Q2 it's very likely placeholder because it is the end of Q2.
It specifically says on the product page "Please note that the release of Watch Dogs has been delayed for all platforms until 2014. At this time, no new release date has been set, so the 6/30/2014 date above is a placeholder. We will update the site with the new release date once it has been confirmed by Ubisoft. If you have already pre-ordered the game, your pre-order is still active, and you will receive the game when it comes out in 2014." So yeah, great job on that article >_>
It's like a drama queen fishing for a compliment with this article. That date is a placeholder of the end of the second quarter and has been there for quite a few months, ever since they announced the delay.
my friend work at ubisoft and the real reason of this delaying is the ps3 and xbox 360 version of the game, too much difficulties to downscale the game to fit on the older consoles...
and they dont want to repete the AC3 Bugs problems, so they want to do a quality game, like AC4, but AC4 was builded on current gen console, not next gen so it was easier to achive. but trust me Watch Dog will be great, for The Division (Greatness Awaits :P )
