Officially releasing worldwide May 27, the game will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. A Wii U version has been confirmed, but has been delayed until some time after June, the publisher said.
The date was revealed at the end of a three minute trailer that finally introduces players to the game's main protagonist, Aiden Pearce, who is caught up in a web of intrigue after breaking into a high tech office and stealing a bunch of data. He discovers a cabal of corrupt cops, politicians and shady Illuminati figures running the near-future Chicago. His only way of combating the conspiracy is through the use of a phone that can "turn the city into a weapon," as one of the characters says.
"Watch Dogs" was revealed at E3 2012 and originally scheduled as a launch title for the next-generation consoles before being delayed less than a month before launch for quality reasons.
