Ubisoft Releases ‘Watch Dogs’ Story Trailer


We’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Watch Dogs, which tells a bit more of the story. The bad news is that the Wii U version is officially delayed, as it is set to launch later in 2014 after the May 27 street date for all other consoles. When we reached out to Ubisoft for more information, but they have not gotten back with us yet. We did see, however, that they did speak with Polygon. “Yeah it’s still alive. […] We still haven’t defined a ship date for it, though. So it’s on hold, to a certain extent for shipping.”

They went on to say that their Bucharest studio is excited to explore the options of the Wii U GamePad. “We wanted that team to have the time to explore the GamePad and be able to have fun with it and see how far they could push it. […] It’s also an interesting platform, because it has its own strength, which we want to take advantage of, and we didn’t want to delay all the other platforms for that one. So we’re going to take the time we need to make sure the game is good (technically) when we ship it and that it also, game design-wise, makes good use of the specifics of the Wii U.”

So, until then, feel free to watch the newest story trailer over and over, because it is really good!
