An errant listing by an online retailer has let slip that Ubisoft’s highly anticipated open-world title will be dropping on the 21st of March.
One of the most disappointing news stories of the year was that Watch Dogs was being pushed back to 2014.
Originally scheduled for a November 2013 release, Watch Dogs promised to be the open-world action game that would bring in the next generation of consoles in with a bang. However, after announcing that the title would be delayed, Ubisoft twisted the knife by remaining mum over the exact release date, leaving gamers in a state of limbo.
Now it seems that the cat is out the bag. A recent listing by online retailer ShopTo has the release date for all versions of the game mentioned as the 21st of March. The skeptics amongst you will probably be unmoved by this, but these guys seem pretty confident. Scroll down and there is a guarantee given by ShopTo, which says, “We are so confident that you will receive Watch Dogs for Friday 21st of March 2014 that if for ANY reason you do not we will compensate you with £5.00 to your account.”
Well, I’m sold. For those who are still in doubt, this is as good a chance as any to earn £5.00.
Incidentally, March 21 is the same day another open-world action game is being released. A little title by the name of Infamous: Second Son for the PS4. Ubisoft must be pretty confident that they have a winner on their hands if they plan to go toe to toe with arguably PS4’s biggest exclusive so far. By all accounts, their confidence is justified. Watch Dogs has been in development for over five years and has been showered with glowing praise by anyone who has had a chance to see it in action.
It wont be too much longer now before the masses get their hands on the game and see what all the fuss is about. March 21. Mark the date on your calendars.
Or £5.00 in your account. Either way, it’s going to be a good day.
