Ubisoft, the development team behind the highly anticipated video game has confirmed that the official release date is set for May 27th. Watch_Dogs was originally supposed to release back in November of last year, but was delayed for the reason that Ubisoft wanted to ensure that the game was held with the highest quality. The title even had its trademark abandoned.

Ubisoft explained it was all fraud and they restored the balance to the force. Many retailers such as the Sony Store and GameStop put in motion a place holder for the title for June 30th of this year just in case.

Watch_Dogs is set in Chicago, Illinois as you assume the role of hacking expert Aiden Pearce. With the power of being able to hack anything, even any citizen’s cell phone or bank account, you are unstoppable.
