Ubisoft will not offer a demo for upcoming open-world action game Watch Dogs because "demos take time" and Ubisoft would rather spend that time working on the main game, creative director Jonathan Morin said on Twitter.

Responding to a flurry of questions, Morin said there is no Watch Dogs demo "planned before release. Sorry for the wait. Doing my best." He explained further that "doing demos takes time. The focus is on the game. You will see more footage before release."

Watch Dogs was originally expected to launch in November 2013 as a launch title for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game was later delayed to spring 2014 and is now expected to release May 27 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The Wii U version is coming sometime later. For more on Watch Dogs, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
