With a press release officially announcing the May 27th release date of Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft EMEA Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Geoffroy Sardin expressed the confidence of the publisher in the game, and in the fact that the long wait will be worth it.
We are pleased to be able to reveal to gamers all over the world the new release date for Watch Dogs. We are extremely confident that the additional time we afforded the dev team to refine and polish the game will be more than worth the wait.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Vice President of Third Party Relations Michael Pattison also added his own comment, boasting the 60 minutes of exclusive content included in the PS3 and PS4 versions of Watch_Dogs:
We’re really excited for the launch of Watch Dogs on both PS3 and PS4 and are confident that it will prove to be one of the standout games of 2014. It’s a unique and visionary game and we believe that the exclusive content available via PSN will not only excite gamers, but showcase how PlayStation is a preferred destination for Watch Dogs.
The press release also confirms that the release date of the Wii U version of the game will be announced at a later date. In the meanwhile, you can find the once leaked and now official trailer here.
We also have confirmation directly from Sony Computer Entertainment that the game will come with two bundles (at least for Europe), one with a PS4 and one with a PS3. You can check them out in the pictures below.
