It’s official: Watch Dogs will be released on May 27, 2014. After being delayed nearly seven months ago, lead director Jonathan Morin has confirmed that the game has gone gold which means it’s complete and ready to be distributed.

Ubisoft’s open world hacker game has had some of its key technical features questioned over the past week. On Sony’s website, the game was listed as boasting full 1080p resolution and a steady frame rate of 60 on the PlayStation 4, both of which were taken down fairly quickly. It has now been confirmed that it will run at 900p and 30 frames per second on the PS4 and 792p and 30 frames per second on the Xbox One. Needless to say, it’s disappointing to see that more games aren’t in full HD or at a higher frame rate; however, Morin stated that the game doesn’t suffer because of its “subpar” settings. Open world games of this magnitude don’t depend on the having the highest resolutions, as long as the frame rate doesn’t make the game feel choppy.

Watch Dogs will run at 900p and 30 fps on the PS4 while only 792p and 30fps on the Xbox One; however, creative director Jonathan Morin is certain that no one will notice the difference – the game will still be an incredible experience. With less than two weeks until the launch day, Watch Dogs has gone gold which is a relief to anyone who still may have had a doubt about its availability even this close to its launch.
