Watch_Dogs is an open world game that has been under development by Ubisoft for around 5 years now, so it’s understandable why Ubisoft may be excited to announced that the game has now finally gone gold, after previous delays earlier on in the year.
Creative director Jonathan Morin commented on the milestone by saying “It’s exciting to be gold, but it’ll be more exciting when people are playing. For the fans it means that it’s true. It means there will be no such thing as another delay. But for us, it’s not done until they actually have it in their hands.”
Luckily, it won’t be long before we finally can get our hands on Watch_Dogs - Ubisoft has set the global release for the open world hackbox game for May 27th, so we’re a little over a week away before it’s available.
A lot of commotion has spread across the internet recently and early reviews and mediocre gameplay footage have turned some players away from Watch_Dogs, but despite the game only running at 30fps in 792p, I personally think the game will be well worth playing.
The premise of Watch_Dogs is original enough to make the experience enjoyable, no matter what the graphical quality of the game is like. It’s unlikely anything will change now that Watch_Dogs has gone gold, so if you’re truly upset that your new next gen title won’t run at 60fps consistently then you may want to find another game.
