Watch Dogs Could See a Simultaneous Release on Current & Next-Gen Consoles
One of the jewel’s of last year’s E3 was the announcement of a brand-new intellectual property, Watch Dogs. Set in a dystopian, urban setting, the science-fiction demo seemed to take many cues from past Ubisoft games, and sported some of the best graphics and animations that we had seen in recent years. The demonstration prompted many to jump to the conclusion that this new game would be one of the first major AAA titles released in the next generation. There could still be credence to that claim.
In images recently obtained by Kotaku, marketing materials for the game make the promise that a launch for all home consoles will happen this home season. Coupled with the quote by G4TV, stating that the game is a, “truly next-gen adventure,” the claims of the title being developed for the next-generation in addition to being developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC (of which it has already been confirmed) do not seem so far-fetched.
Other games rumored to be seeing a simultaneous release across old and new consoles are Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us. Watch Dogs is currently being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Reflections.
