Watch Dogs: A "True Next-Gen" Title Set For The Holidays?

Remember the game that wowed the hell out of everyone at E3 2012? Yeah, that's right, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs.

It looked so amazing that many were convinced the title was in the works for next-generation platforms. However, the publisher hasn't confirmed systems for the promising project just yet, although the latest update says the game will arrive later this year.

This according to marketing material obtained by Kotaku; a leaked poster says Watch Dogs will be available for "all home consoles" this holiday season. The poster also says this title be a "truly next-gen adventure" so maybe that's kind of a hint. There's a chance that both the new PlayStation and Xbox will be on store shelves later this year, so... Watch Dogs is definitely intriguing, and it could end up being a really special game. And we could use a brand new IP.

We'll have to wait for Ubisoft to make all the official confirmations, though.

Watch Dogs should rightfully be on next generation hardware and I hope it will appear on Orbis and Durango. This amazing piece of software needs to strut its stuff on newer hardware or a top-of-the-line PC.

If this game can pull off all of the different things that they have stated it can do thus far, barring any new features they mention at this year's E3, this will be one incredible experience, no matter the console.

I would definitely suggest next gen, M$ box utilizing blu-ray for the first time, don't have to worry about either one getting a really dumbed down version of the game.

Wait, I thought Ubisoft already said this is for the current gen?

To be honest I haven't seen anything yet that has *screamed* next-gen to me - it just looks like an incredibly cool game.

But it all depends on the scale. If the city clips we've seen are in fact just a small bit of a much larger city, all bursting with as much life as those areas we've seen, then we most definitely can start talking next gen here. That's something current gen can't handle.

Either way I'm hoping it's for the Orbis. I will *not* be buying more games for the PS3 after this summer - The Last Of Us is the PS3 grande finale for me.

Believe it or not there are many games made this gen that have been dumbed down in some way due to the older tech. I would rather not have any current gen limitations hold this gem back.

Of course. It must have been - that makes perfect sense. It would be harder to believe it if it wasn't.

And by all means, let there be no doubt: I welcome a generation shift with *wide* open arms.

if this game is for next gen, then what the hell is it doing on an xbox or ps3? isn't anyone else sick of this sarcasm?

like 10 years ago, when you tell me FF10 is on next gen PS2, i wouldn't expect you to play the same thing on a PS1

What had me convinced that this may be next gen was how life like the npcs reacted. Remember the big accident? There was a npc on the main characters left side that reacted like a normal human startled by an abrupt collision.

Guys imagine if Watch Dogs was released around the same time frame as GTA. That would be a dream for me!

Dream for you but nightmare for Ubisoft, GTA will destroy Watch Dogs no matter how good it is.

nothing new, we already knew it was being made for current systems and it would release later this year because the devs said so!
as for next gen systems, well it was shown off on a VERY high spec PC, and ubisoft quite frequently when a generation is on its way out goes cross generation, ie release a game on both last and current gen.
not hard to put 2 and 2 together.
i just hope ubi dont pull their normal BS and delay this on PC by 6 weeks for "further polish".
especially when i walked into eb 3 weeks before release of the PC version and saw it sitting on store shelves!
yea, we need the extra development time thats why half of it was spent sitting at the back of the store!
sigh.
yea, it needs extra development time just like rayman legends does!
