The UbiBlog announces
that Watch Dogs
is gold, and the open-world hacking game is on track for
its planned release on May 27th. Here's word:
It’s official. Watch Dogs
has gone gold, and is right on track for worldwide release on May 27, 2014.
experience that reinvents the way gamers will interact with an
interconnected open-world city, Watch Dogs arms players with the most powerful
of modern weapons: a cell phone that grants unprecedented access to Chicago’s
Central Operating System (ctOS). Aiden Pearce wields this weapon – along with
his brawn, his guns and his high-tech gadgets – as a vigilante driven to seek
out justice (or vengeance) against those who harmed his family.
First revealed at E3 2012, Watch Dogs has been in the works since 2009. Now that
the game’s gone gold after an epic five-and-a-half-year development cycle,
what’s that mean for the team? “It’s exciting to be gold,” says Creative
Director Jonathan Morin. “But it’ll be more exciting when people are playing.
For the fans it means that it’s true. It means there will be no such thing as
another delay. But
for us, it’s not done until they actually have it in their hands.”
