Stop the presses. Or all the videogame ones anyway.
Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft’s open world hacker free-for-all, is now being delayed to Spring 2014 and calling into question all the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Amazon pre-order bundles. Despite being so close to the launch (a month and four days), the Watch_Dogs development team indicated in a blog post that their final push indicated that a few things needed additional work.
“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.”
They also emphasized that they would “not compromise on quality.”
Amazon asks for pre-order customers to hang tight while they figure out their next course of action, but it depends on what the distributor says.
