Ubisoft has now confirmed that Watch Dogs will be released worldwide on 27th May, 2014 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The Wii U version will come at a later date.
The news was previously leaked this morning when a video was found on Xbox.com that showed new gameplay footage and the release date at the end.
"We are pleased to be able to reveal to gamers all over the world the new release date for Watch Dogs,” said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Ubisoft. "We are extremely confident that the additional time we afforded the dev team to refine and polish the game will be more than worth the wait.”
PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 owners will have exclusive access to 60 minutes of additional gameplay via the PlayStation Network. It isn't known if this will be available to PC users at a later date, although we've asked Ubisoft for comment.
"We’re really excited for the launch of Watch Dogs on both PS3 and PS4 and are confident that it will prove to be one of the standout games of 2014,” said Michael Pattison, Vice President, Third Party Relations, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. "It’s a unique and visionary game and we believe that the exclusive content available via PSN will not only excite gamers, but showcase how PlayStation is a preferred destination for Watch Dogs."
