Ubisoft has responded to claims that the visual performance of upcoming open-world action game Watch Dogs has been scaled back since its initial unveiling at E3 2012. That's just not true, Ubisoft Benelux PR and events manager Tessa Vilyn said today across a series of tweets.
The Watch Dogs visual downgrade claims came to light this week from a GIF found on NeoGAF. Compiled using video footage from the game released this week, it suggested the game's graphical fidelity had been scaled back since last we saw it.
"Believe me the game is not downgraded," Vilyn said. "That would just be a bit ridiculous. I saw the game it looks incredible. It looks what a next gen should look like."
Watch Dogs launches May 27 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Wii U version is definitely not canceled, but does not have a release date yet.
