Watch Dogs looked like one of the most ambitious and potentially awesome games on the fall release slate. But no longer. Now, the game isn't scheduled to arrive until the spring.
In the delay announcement on its official blog, Ubisoft calls the decision to postpone Watch Dogs "tough." However, it says the delay was necessary to "deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming." The firm goes on to say:
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.
At least, this way, we'll have plenty of time to get our PCs tuned up and ready. As we reported last week, Watch Dogs has some pretty steep hardware requirements. Ubisoft says a 64-bit OS and at least 6GB of RAM are needed, and it recommends a Core i7-3770K or AMD FX-8350 processor.
