Watch Dogs delayed

It was so close expectant gamers could practically taste it but now Watch Dogs is gone far away, to the distant lands of Spring 2014.

Rather short notice then, given that the game was set for multiplatform release on the 22nd of November this year. What caused this sudden reversal?

In a statement on the official Ubi blog a message from the development team read, “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.”

This translates neatly to, “It wasn’t good enough so we’re making it better” and it’s hard to complain about that.

Sure it’s a little disappointing you can’t get your hands on Watch Dogs this year, but when it finally does arrive it’ll be much better for the delay.
