Ubisoft showed off one of the first video games for the next-generation at E3 2012 with the open-world action-adventure video game. The company is apparently putting a lot of resources into “Watch Dogs” as it has a budget of $68 million. Furthermore, the software product was delayed indefinitely, which could further increase the production costs.

Activision is planning to make “Destiny” into the next franchise that can achieve billions in revenue. As a result, the publisher decided to allocate $140 million to Bungie. The shared-world first-person shooter was also pushed back as it was initially set to launch in the spring season of this year.

“Destiny” is now slated to come out for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Sept. 9th. A new release date has not yet been announced for “Watch Dogs,” which is coming out for the Nintendo Wii U, PC as well as the aforementioned Playstation and Xbox platforms.

The new intellectual properties need to sell million of copies at full price in order to recoup the development costs and be profitable. Fortunately for both Activision and Ubisoft, the two video games seem to be getting a lot of attention from the gaming community.
