Watch Dogs delayed to 2014


Wow. That’s all I got on this one.
 
We’re just about a month away from the highly, and I mean HIGHLY, anticipate open world game’s official release date of November 22, 2013, and Ubisoft drops this bomb on their blog:
 

“Following is a statement directly from the Watch Dogs development teams.

Our ambition from the start with Watch Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming. It is with this in mind that we’ve made the tough decision to delay the release until spring 2014.

We know a lot of you are probably wondering: Why now? We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion keeps us motivated.

We can’t wait to see you in Chicago next spring. We are confident you’ll love this game as much as we love working on it.”

 
That’s just. . . wild. Anyway, It looks like Ubisoft is also delaying the release of The Crew to summer 2014.
 
Delays aren’t uncommon in this industry, but a delay this close to release for such a massive period of time. . . doesn’t bode well to me.
