Finally, after an exceedingly long delay and an almost throttling of its trademark, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs has a release date. Well, at least one we hope it won’t miss this time. VG 24/7 have reported, following the leaking of a trailer ahead of schedule, that the open-world hack-a-thon will be available worldwide from May 27.

“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,” the Europe, Middle East and Africa vice president of Ubisoft, Geoffroy Sardin, said.

Can’t wait :D


Looks cool.


I’m impressed so far but will wait for reviews before purchasing.


PC or console, or both?


Eugh, I’m so sick of this story. I’d like to play something that isn’t a collection of the fantasies and cheap emotional triggers of teenage boys.

Spot the damsel in the fridge, the brutally violent interrogation, the shadowy mastermind… Never mind the ‘hacking’ being a magic phone you’re given. I don’t understand why with such a massive budget, they can’t afford to write a story that doesn’t lean on so many tired tropes.

I thought they were pursuing a creative vision here, but it seems the vision was purely about gameplay/technology, and as usual the story was an afterthought.

Hopefully it just seems terrible from the way they’ve cut the trailer, but my expectations have gone way down. Now I’m just hoping for a fun sandbox with no one constantly asking me to go bowling.
