In a decision to further fine-tune their anticipated game, Ubisoft will be delaying the release of Watch Dogs to some time in Spring 2014. As explained in the UbiBlog, the team decided that in order to deliver a truly extraordinary experience for the next generation of consoles Watch Dogs requires more time to be further refined.
The team further talked about their decision saying that this was not an easy decision for them to make. They also said that they "would not compromise on [the] quality" of the game by releasing Watch Dogs on its original release date. They then thanked the fans of the game saying that "your passion keeps us motivated."
While the delay is sure to be upsetting for fans, gamers can at least wait knowing that they will receive a more polished experience than originally expected.
