Talk about last second. This game technically should have been gold by now.

As long as it gets extra polish I'll begrudgingly accept this.

EDIT: bluexy it looks like Ubisoft has no answer for the next gen bundle consoles

Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo understand the importance of releasing games of the very highest quality for their consoles. Our partnership with Sony remains strong and we will have more details to share about the specific benefits of this partnership for PlayStation customers at a later date.

DedValve Exactly. It was probably decided at one of those last minute meetings over, "Do we go gold with this or delay."

I wonder whats going to happen to those bundles. Will it be retailers who handle the situation or Ubisoft? Will they get a different game or a lower cost? A token to download the game upon release alongside an extra Ubi game at launch (such as ACIV)?

So many questions Ubi!

DedValve It's going to take some time. Retailers will have to go to Sony to figure out whether the bundles will be replaced with different units. Sony will have to figure out whether they can put the consoles in with different games or have to just ship them standalone. Retailers will have to decide if the replacement option is acceptable, then approach their preorderers and ask them if they want to switch to the new option or cancel outright.

If you preordered a Watch Dogs bundle, contact your preorder retailer and ask them about your options. Keep calling every few days until it's all sorted out.

Man this is the second "completed" game that Ubisoft has delayed this year. Even worse as it's now a retail nightmare to sort through.

If anything I could see something like ACIV being offered digitally with a key for Watch_Dogs whenever that comes out.

Completely screwed over the people who ordered the bundle.

Reports going around that both Amazon and GameStop are still planning on delivering the consoles to preorderers without any delays on their current estimated delivery dates, just without Watch Dogs. Expect to be contacted by either retailer about your options, if you've preordered one of these bundles.

Upsetting! I was looking forward to playing the game next month. But if it means it'll be better I'm down.

Ah, that's a bummer. This would have been one of the games I would have pre-ordered for the holidays. I hope these changes they are making will really improve the gameplay, delays usually don't help a games' record. >>

What the heck. I literally pre-ordered this shit and ignored Pokemon X and Y to just hear this? Man, that's pretty unfortunate. But oh well.
