Ever since its unveiling at E3 2012, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs has been the subject of much praise and excitement and has become one of the most anticipated title coming out this fall for both current and next gen consoles. Considering the sheer amount of the game Ubisoft has been showing off to the press, it came as quite a shock when the company revealed that the game is going to be pushed back from its original November release date until next spring.

Ubisoft released a statement that said the following:

“We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.”

I think most gamers are in agreement that they would rather see a game get delayed in the interest of quality, but it isn’t too often that you see a major title get delayed on such short notice. Furthermore, this sudden move might prove to shake some consumers’ confidence in the game even with the extra development time. Hopefully this delay will benefit the game because I am definitely one of the millions of gamers interested in Watch Dogs.

    I’m sad and happy. I’m sad because I really wanted to play the game next month; however I’m happy because I’ll have more Mario World time, and the game might be better because of the delay.
    Oh well, back to Rayman Legends.
