Ubisoft has officially announced that their anticipated open-world action adventure game, Watch Dogs, will release globally on May 27 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The Wii U version will be released at a later date yet to be revealed.
The release date appears at the end of a new trailer posted to Ubisoft’s YouTube account earlier today. The trailer delves into the background of lead character, Aiden Pearce, and his motives for becoming a the deadly hacker we know him to be.
Watch Dogs was originally set to release Nov 19 of last year, but was delayed to allow additional development time. With a confirmed May release date, Ubisoft will have taken 6 additional months to polish their title, hopefully refining it into the visionary hit it is expected to be.
