Watch Dogs release date revealed by Ubisoft

The official release date for the delayed Watch Dogs has finally been announced as part of a new story trailer.

The release date for Watch Dogs has officially been released by Ubisoft.

Originally scheduled for release last November, Watch Dogs was delayed until 2014 and was predicted for a release somewhere between April 1st and June 30th.

Now, Ubisoft has released a story trailer, shown above, which introduces players to the story of the game and revealed May 27th as the official release date.

Set in Chicago, you play as Aiden Pearce, a hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you’ll monitor and hack those around you by manipulating the ctOS from the palm of your hand.

Watch Dogs will be available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3 whilst the Wii U version has been delayed.

  • Hey Sam! I can't attach a feature picture to this post, is it something to do with my permission access on the new system? Best, Tom
  • Hey Sam, it's the new system, I'm just trying it out for my latest podcast episode with Greg Lucey and I'm trying to attach a picture - it uploads the picture and then says I don't have permission to attach it :(
  • Hi Tom, I'll look into this today. I think I already know what the issue is. It's because the media being uploaded is not associating itself to a post ID. Thank you for being my test dummy. At least this creation dialogue is working!!!
  • Hey Sam, I've tried again just now still the same issues I'm afraid :( I'd also look at the text editor I'm not sure if the texted/front is properly formatting at the moment (there's big gapes in the spacing, front size). If you want to jump around inside my draft and see what's what please do! I think I am going to use the legacy editor to upload today, but we can work  on testing and refining the new editor together :) Best, Tom
