Finally, after all the images haunt me in my sleep, Ubisoft officially announces Watch Dogs will launch on May 27th, 2014, which interestingly enough falls right on my birthday. Oh, Ubi, you knew! But seriously, it was supposed to be a next-gen, console launch title they said. Before 2014 they said... The artwork on the Playstation 4 retail box is nothing but a lie! However, the news of this launch date shall suffice for now, heh.
The reason for the delay was a deliberate need to further refine and polish the game, which is fine with me. I'm hoping the game retains it's espionage-y, smarter, and darker feeling when compared to similar open-world genres of the same nature like Grand Theft Auto. I like the idea that every character in the game has a "backstory" that you can tap into.

Watch Dogs will be available worldwide on May 27, 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The Wii U version will be available at a later date.
