Less then one month till the next generation of gaming is upon us and it looks like Ubisoft’s newest AAA IP’s Watch Dog’s and The Crew is hit with a delay. Not only is it not meeting this years launch date along side the PS4 and Xbox One but it looks to have a date well into 2014.
Ubisoft posted this statement from the Watch Dogs development team on the Ubisoft Blog:
“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.
We know a lot of you are probably wondering: Why now? We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion keeps us motivated.
We can’t wait to see you in Chicago next spring. We are confident you’ll love this game as much as we love working on it.”
Their’s also some buzz that they have hired their third tech lead on the project, looks like their also might be difficulty within Ubisoft in general.
