Report: Watch Dogs gets a release date [update: confirmed, trailer]

Posted on March 6, 2014 AT 05:55am

Update: Ubisoft has now officially confirmed that Watch Dogs will launch May 27 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. The leaked trailer has now officially been released by the publisher and you can check it out below.

Original Story: Last we heard Watch Dogs was due to release during the first quarter of Ubisoft’s new fiscal year (April-June 2014). However, a rogue tweet and a leaked trailer appear to have revealed an actual release date.

A since deleted tweet by U.K. retailer GAME claimed that Watch Dogs would be arriving May 27 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. Following this tweet, a leaked story trailer for the game appeared online via that also backed up the May 27 date. A Wii U version is expected to release after this date.

When contacted about the leaked release date by Videogamer, Ubisoft stated that it did not comment on rumor and speculation.

Earlier today, a post on the Ubisoft Facebook page told fans to prepare for some big news at 6:00 p.m. CET. Presumably this will be the release date announcement.
