Watch Dogs releasing in 2013 on PC and 'consoles'
Ubisoft's sandbox action game Watch Dogs, which was revealed last week at E3 and arguably stole the show, could be releasing in 2013. Ubisoft posted, then removed the tweet confirming the 2013 release date, likely in an attempt to steer clear of speculation.
During the gameplay demo, there was no mention of a release window or platform. In the same tweet, it was stated that Watch Dogs would be released on PC and "consoles". This, of course, paves the way for rumors surrounding the game's next-gen possibilities. If you had seen the gameplay you could make a case that Watch Dogs is a next-gen game, possibly arriving on the PS4 and Xbox 720, which could be why no platforms were stated.
Aside from the stellar gameplay and compelling idea, the graphics looked stunning. The textures, reflections, and models were all impressive and when time was slowed down you could literally see each individual raindrop bouncing off the surface. While the demo was likely shown off the PC, it's still hard to fathom the aging Xbox 360 or PS3 capable of reproducing something similar.
The tweet has since been removed, but not before GameTrailers captured a screenshot.
Watch Dogs is an open-world action-adventure that "blends cutting-edge technologies and sophisticated game design into a realistic and living open world where players must use any means at their disposal to take down a corrupt system." Watch Dogs enters the dangerous world of Aiden Pearce, a "new class of antihero" who has the ability to hack into any connected electronic system. It's a game that focuses on the concept that all people can be identified and tracked based on their electronic interactions, be it through the internet or their cell phones.
