Real reason for the delay: JJ Abrams is suing or threatening a lawsuit because he feels the game is copying one of his TV shows known as "Person of Interest". This is coming from an inside source.
Duke Nukem: Forever.... lol This also reminds me of when the original Spore was scrapped so close to release and had many waiting for something more "User Friendly".
The thing that gets me is that Ubisoft spends all this money on their glossy marketing rollout for a game they... well... can't seem to roll out.
I miss the old days when game developers spent their money on game development, rather than media buys.
Johnny you're slowly developing into a master of narrative and commentary but you need to do some push ups in your spare time cuz you're also slowly developing bitch tits.
It doesn't matter when a game is released as long as it's a quality product. take your time and give us a quality product!
This is why I don't pre-order a new console and wait to pick one when it is already released and I know what games I can actually play on it.
I wasn't going to buy watchdogs until spring anyway most likely. I'm more excited for AC 4 and NBA nk14
They should've just said "It'll be done, when it's done" and have done with it. None of this release date garbage, until it's done.
I hope this comes out on the Wii U. I get the impression that if AC IV fails to shift the desired number of units then Ubisoft will cancel the Wii U version and I really want this game.
Jesus... a new website and you still can't reset the quality part way through without having the video reset.
Don't really care about Watchdogs being delayed cause won't be getting a next gen console this year anyway
Hmm.... Why not use "The Point" in this... I mean I would have. Being all.... is there really a reason to buy next gen without WatchDogs
Wasn't planning on getting a Next Gen console anytime soon anyways; it's always better for devs to take as much time as they need in order to deliver a good product than rushing out cr@p like most movie-based video games.
Wasn't Bioshock Infinite delayed, so was gears of war 3. people just need to relax many big games have been delayed and was still a huge hit upon release. gives me time to play with the younger Bruce Wayne!!!
You know whats wrong with the gaming industry now adays? The whiney little children bitching when a game doesn't come out when they demand it. Oh and companies like EA, Ubisoft, ActivBlizzard leeching off people.
Do people not realize just how big of an undertaking a game takes to being made in today's age? My god, you little shits try making a game in a giant company like that when someone is telling you how to make the game THEN you can bitch and moan.
For me, watchdogs was the only excuse to get a ps4. So... canceled preorder and getting it with Destiny, MG...
I hope the delay means a better product, hopefully i'm still interested in 2014 a lot of good games coming out then as well
If they are delaying it solely to make the game better and because the staff has been rushed up to this point then I am behind the delay 100%. If they're doing this because they just want great opening week sales numbers to impress the stockholders then suffice to say the decision is ridiculous.
I'm sorry but I have yet to see the benefits of a video game publisher being publicly traded. All it seems to do is create rushed and cookie cutter games while cutting down on innovation and R&D. To this day Take-2 seems to be the only company that doesn't give in to every last whim in regards to their stock price.
The saddest part though is reading the so called Wall Street experts project future performance for video game stocks, which if you read only a couple of blurbs you learn pretty fast they know virtually nothing about the industry outside of a few profit and loss statements and the names of a couple products.
Well Ubisoft,I had watch dogs preordered for my PS 4 but since you delayed it I've decided I don't care anymore and I'm gonna still play it when it comes out but I'm gonna pirate it on my PC.
i know what this is....they just felt bad after GTA V made so much sales...they fell lik nobody will love them as much.....wat a p*&*&y move Ubisoft......fuckin stay with the game....i wish nobody buys it even seriously, i cant buy a product that even the company has no faith in it after making it for "5years"
How many people refuse to buy a delayed game when it finally comes out. Just refuse to experience the game, even if it ends up highly rated. Just sit there and say, "Nope, I reFUSE to partake!"?
I could care less if it's delayed if it means I get a better product.
There is such a HUGE library of great games out there for PC, PS3, and X360 that I have a backlog as it is. It could come out next Christmas if it means it'll be closer to bug free and have more features. My preorder is staying put.
I have so many games to get through I couldn't care that it was delayed to be honest. Gives me ample time to get through my pile of shame!
Im sure people are gonna buy the game, but it does not surprise me some are cancelling thier pre-orders with christmas coming up you want to spend money on things that are going to help you, not game consoles your not going to even play this year.
I thought it was disappointing that the game was delayed because I think it looked like one of the more original launch titles, but at the same time I wasn't personally that interested in it.
I guess it's hard to tell which is more bothersome though; the fact that a console launch game was delayed a month beforehand, or the fact that people are cancelling pre-orders and getting so angry because they can't wait a few more months for a game.
@19James89 you could buy a grown up system.
@19James89 Watch Dogs is releasing on Wii U.
@ozziekun That just sounds *wrong*.
Well competition dictates otherwise, you can't hype up a game of this magnitude and then pull the plug half assed. They just lost a shit load of sales
@Sun-Tzu-GE Feedbackula already happened on this topic.
@b74kd3th How does a delay equate to pulling the plug *facepalm*
@b74kd3th Silly rant? You are the most childish idiot I've had the displeasure of talking to today. Go back under your bridge little troll no one gives a shit about your insignificant opinion.
In most people's minds, they will just move on and forget this game. You're silly rant does nothing to change that
