Watch Dogs release date and PS3/PS4 bundles set for May

Today Ubisoft has set a solid release date for Watch Dogs, suggesting it’ll be out (for real this time) on May 27th, 2014. This release date includes all platforms save Wii U, which has been delayed once more. Included in this release date ushering is a new story trailer which will give prospective users greater insight into the workings of the final print of the game.

In the trailer you’ll see not just one whole heck of a lot more information about the game than you’ve likely seen before, but it should give you a closer look at what Ubisoft suggests the graphics will look like on a high-powered PC. This game will be released to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and gaming PCs all at once.*

*While the Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will be out on the 25th, it now appears that the Xbox 360 version will be released on the 27th. It could also be true that the international – read: outside USA – versions of the games will come 2 days later, but you’ll be safer to bet that the “next-gen” consoles will get the 25th release date while the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 releases will come two days later.


UPDATE: There is now one single release date – nothing will be out on the 25th, only everything out on the 27th. All versions save the Wii U.


Meanwhile there will be full-fledged PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 Watch Dogs bundles available on the 27th of May. These models will be the standard 500GB version of the PlayStation 4 and a 500GB version of the PlayStation 3, and as with all PlayStation versions, Watch Dogs will have “an additional 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay” not available anywhere else. Prices incoming, but you can expect these to match up with previous bundles and stand-alone games released this season.

UPDATE: Wii U released called “a possibility” for 2014 by Ubisoft’s senior producer to Polygon. Every other version is “on schedule.”
