Open-world hacking game Watch_Dogs has been delayed to spring 2014, Ubisoft announced this morning via their developer blog. Ubisoft explain the situation thus:
We know a lot of you are probably wondering: Why now? 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 each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.
Watch_Dogs is in development for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Wii U. The game has you playing as a vigilante named Aiden Pearce, who uses his smartphone to hack into Chicago’s central operating system to take control of the city.
