Watch Dogs release date announced

Watch Dogs

After much delay, Watch Dogs has finally been given the green light for release on 27 May.

“We are pleased to be able to reveal to gamers all over the world the new release date for Watch Dogs,” said Geoffroy Sardin, 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.”

Unusually for UbiSoft the PC version will launch at the same time as the console versions which is a refreshing change. To celebrate the news there’s also a new trailer which looks at what drives our protagonist Aiden Pearce.

The system specs were also revealed (thanks Gary) and are the same specs that were revised and released last year.
