Ever since it was first revealed, fans have been waiting for a definitive release date of Watch Dogs, Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world game. Now, at last, we have one.
PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC users will be able to pick up Watch Dogs on May 27. Wii U users will have to wait a little longer, as that version of the game has been delayed. It’s been a long time since Watch Dogs was announced, but Ubisoft’s Geoffroy Sardin believes the finished product is well worth the time it took to develop.
In honor of the release date, Ubisoft released a new story trailer.
The trailer triggered a new controversy amongst fans, as the trailer footage doesn’t show graphics on par with those shown in E3 trailers. Ubisoft’s PR and Event Manager, Tessa Vilyn, has claimed the graphics haven’t been downgraded.
Head Creative Director Jonathan Morin has since come out and said Watch Dogs on the PS4 will match the PS4 graphics seen at E3 2013.

Don’t forget, Watch Dogs has 60 minutes of exclusive content for PS3 and PS4 players. Additionally, players in Europe will be able to buy a PS3 Watch Dogs bundle and a PS4 Watch Dogs bundle. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear more details, along with any news about the bundles coming to other regions.
Are you looking forward to Watch Dogs?
