Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft, stated in an earnings report that the highly anticipated and delayed Watch Dogs is slated for a “first fiscal quarter release” in 2014.
“Today we are specifying our targets for full-year 2013-14 and are confirming our target for non-IFRS operating income for 2014-15. Fiscal 2014-15 will see an exceptional games line-up, with the release of five major titles including Just Dance, The Crew and Watch Dogs, which is scheduled for release in the first fiscal quarter. Our line-up is also expected to reap the benefits of the return to growth in the console market and the increasingly significant impact of digital gaming.”
Jargon, blah, blah, jargon, blah, blah. Basically, they’re expecting growth and among the reasons is Watch Dogs with an aimed April – June release date. Well, that’s good news to all you Watch Dogs fans out there! I’m indifferent and cautious about believing anything until set release dates are announced! Not that it would really matter as Watch Dogs just doesn’t look like it’s for me! Hoorah!
