Ubisoft kom med den kedelige meddelelse på deres blog, hvor de skrev:
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.
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 each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.
Ubisoft afslutter deres blogindlæg med at takke alle deres fans og den positive respons de har fået på Watch Dogs. Der blev ikke givet nogen præcis udgivelsesdato, andet til foråret 2014.
