Watch_Dogs’ Release Date Pegged on April 18th by Retailer

on February 8, 2014 5:29 AM

One of the biggest gaming mysteries of the moment is the release date of Ubisoft’s hack&shoot open world game Watch_Dogs, but now that the trademark-related problems have been archived, it’s almost time to finally hear some kind of announcement.

Austrian retailer Gamesonly, that according to our tipster is normally quite precise with its release dates, is now indicating April 18th as a release date for all platforms (yes, including Wii U). Not being near the beginning or the end of a month, or of a fiscal quarter, it doesn’t look like a simple placeholder.

Despite that, like we do with all release dates indicated by retailers, we should of course take this with a rather sizable grain of salt. As I said above, it’s really time for Ubisoft to come out with a release date, before the fans decide to pull out the pitchforks.
