Hacking into Chicago's mainframe will have to wait a few more months.
Upcoming open-world action game Watch Dogs has been delayed until spring 2014, several months after its initial November 2013 release date.
Ubisoft today issued a statement explaining that this delay is to ensure that the development team can produce a high quality final product.
"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," the statement read.
"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 every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience."
Revealed at last year's E3, Watch Dogs is a futuristic action-adventure title starring Aiden Pearce, a hacker who gains access to all electronic and information systems in Chicago. Earlier this month, the game's creative director, Jonathan Morin, stated that the Wii U version would have superior graphics compared to the current generation versions on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
