Ubisoft has announced today that their open-world game Watch Dogs will be delayed until Spring 2014. Originally slated for release on current gen, PC, and next-gen consoles this November 2013, the game will not be releasing on time to original plans. This doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing though, our own Deputy Editor and Editor-In-Chief had already expressed their viewpoints that Watch Dogs has a lot to prove in the first RGN Analysis article. Hopefully the delay is indicative of a meaningful change to the game such as more interesting content. We’ll reserve judgement on the game until getting our hands on it as always.
**UPDATE**: Ubisoft’s New IP The Crew, as detailed in our piece entitled “The Crew (Next-Gen Racing) Aims At Being One of the Biggest Racing Games Ever”, has also been delayed until “at least Spring 2014” according to its publisher. The delay of these two titles is suggestive of a business strategy for Ubisoft to A) not force its own titles to compete, B) protect New IP’s from the Holiday competitive scnes, and C) Keep most of their flagship titles besides Just Dance 2014 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag far away from gaming wallet sponges like the next-gen consoles, Grand Theft Auto V, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Battlefield 4 as they are expected to be gobbled up this Holiday Season.
