Watch Dogs release date confirmed by Ubisoft

With the launch of Titanfall just around the corner and Thief keeping us busy till then, its easy to forget about some other games which we were eagerly anticipating a couple of weeks back. One of such forgotten game is Watch Dogs and Ubisoft have just reminded us to mark our calendar by providing a launch date for the game.

A trailer was leaked some time back but now Ubisoft have officially confirmed that their newest open world action-adventure game Watch Dogs would be arriving worldwide on the 27th of May. The game is scheduled to be launched on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC on the above stated date with the Wii U version coming later this year (expected around June).

Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA SVP of sales and marketing at Ubisoft said on the occasion

“We are pleased to be able to reveal to gamers all over the world the new release date for Watch Dogs

We are extremely confident that the additional time we afforded the dev team to refine and polish the game will be more than worth the wait.”

Michael Pattison, Vice President of Third Party Relations at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe said

“We’re really excited for the launch of Watch Dogs on both PS3 and PS4 and are confident that it will prove to be one of the standout games of 2014

It’s a unique and visionary game and we believe that the exclusive content available via PSN will not only excite gamers, but showcase how PlayStation is a preferred destination for Watch Dogs.”

In Watch Dogs, players assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a vigilante hero who uses his electronic arsenal to hack into Chicago’s central operating system to control almost every element of the city to provide himself with an advantage over his adversaries.
