PC Advisor staff | Jan. 30, 2014
Watch_Dogs will be one of Ubisoft's biggest 2014 launches. Here's what we know about the UK release date and pre-order pricing.

At PC Advisor, we're particularly looking forward to the release of Ubisoft's Watch_Dogs, a game which will undoubtedly appeal to all tech geeks. It's a game that speak to the constant surveillance and tracking that we're all subject to, and lets you play a hacker who can manipulate everything that's connected to the city's network.

Watch_Dogs was supposed to be a launch title on both the PS4, reviewed, and Xbox One, also reviewed, but then was pushed back to an "early 2014" release date. Back in October 2013 Ubisoft announced that both Watch Dogs and The Crew would not be launched until mid-2014, and within the first fiscal quarter, which means sometime between April 1st and June 30th.

Ubisoft has refused to comment on the launch troubles, stating only that it would "never compromise on quality".

Watch_Dogs will be available also on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC, and you can keep up with the latest official news on Ubisoft's UK website for Watch Dogs. Ubisoft's UK website for Watch Dogs
