Ubisoft Montreal believes Watch Dogs was revealed too early

Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal Jonathan Morin says Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillmot "forced" the studio to reveal Watch Dogs at E3 2012 in spite of the studio believing it was too soon.

Speaking with the latest issue of EDGE magazine, Morin said, "[Ubisoft] forced us to go at E3 2012. We didn't know what the hell those new consoles would be, so Watch Dogs really has worked on [seventh]-gen systems since the start. But we always pushed the ideas, the design, the core of Watch Dogs in such a way that we felt it would fit well with what we thought would be the future of games."

"Yves was the one who wanted us to go at that E3," he added. "Even though we felt it was a bit early."

Ubisoft Montreal unveiled Watch Dogs to much praise during Ubisoft's press conference at E3 2012. The game was initially intended to launch alongside next-gen consoles in November 2013 but ultimately suffered a delay to what we've recently discovered is May 27.

Gamers are accusing Watch Dogs' visuals of being "downgraded" since its reveal, though the publisher says this is untrue.

Watch Dogs will release on May 27 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
