Watch Dogs Game Director: E3 Reveal "Was A Bit Early"
Remember that amazing Watch Dogs E3 2012 presentation?
Well, in the long run, that may have actually hurt Ubisoft's case for the new IP. The increasing hype has been partly derailed by the recent flood of "graphical down-scaling" rumors. These rumors have yet to be confirmed (the publisher insists the game will definitely look "next-gen") but either way, these headlines aren't helping.
In the wake of this, the game's creative director Jonathan Morin told Edge (as cited by Polygon) that in fact, they were "forced" to make that presentation:
"They forced us to go at E3 2012. Yves was the one who wanted us to go at that E3, even though we felt it was a bit early."
Morin is referring to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. However, Morin said he eventually agreed with Guillemot's decision, saying- "I think he was right." Yes, but do you? Given everything that has happened, including a lengthy delay and some questionable press, maybe it really was too early.
