Ubisoft Montreal announced today that all versions of the action-adventure stealth game Watch Dogs (or Watch_Dogs depending on where you read about it) will be delayed until Spring 2014. The game was originally planned for release on November 19, 2013 as a launch title for Sony's PlayStation 4, with other releases on the PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U.
 
Amazon and GameStop, retailers that are offering a Watch Dogs bundle with the new next-generation consoles, issued statements that customers will be getting their consoles on time, but without the game, which will be shipping separately once its released.
 
Below is the announcement from the team on their development blog:
 

“Our ambition from the start with Watch_Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming. It is with this in mind that we’ve made the tough decision to delay the release until Spring 2014.

We know a lot of you are probably wondering ‘why now?’ We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and during other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion is what drives us.

We can’t wait to see you in Chicago next Spring. We are confident you’ll love this game as much as we love working on it.”
