It looks like one of next-gen's most anticipated launch titles won't be seeing light of day until much later now, as Ubisoft has announced that Watch_Dogs is being held back until 2014. Ubisoft's ambitious MMO racer, The Crew has also been delayed until later in 2014, between July and September (August then?), according to a post on IGN. The game has been scheduled for Q1 2014.

This means that both Watch_Dogs and The Crew are unlikely to see release before April 1st, 2014. "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," Community Developer 'Nik_ctOS' confirmed on the Ubisoft forums.

"We know a lot of you are probably wondering ‘why now?’ 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," the statement continues.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and during other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion is what drives us.

"We can’t wait to see you in Chicago next Spring. We are confident you’ll love this game as much as we love working on it."

Watch_Dogs had been scheduled to surface in time for Xbox One's launch day and for November 19th in North America and November 22nd in Europe for Xbox 360. Now that won't be the case. Watch_Dogs and The Crew are both now slated for 2014.
