The online retailers are listing a Nov. 12 release date for the PS4 version of “Watch Dogs,” which is exactly one week earlier than the releases of the Nintendo Wii U, PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One iterations. The date is also three days before the launch of Sony’s next-generation console. So it appears that gamers may be able to purchase the PS4 version several days in advance of getting the system.

Sony Computer Entertainment already has an existing exclusive content deal with Ubisoft in regards to “Watch Dogs.” Both the PS3 and PS4 versions of the open-world action-adventure video game would include 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay. The same type of exclusive deal has been made with the upcoming “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.”

Ubisoft Montreal, along with some help from Ubisoft Reflections, is developing “Watch Dogs” for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms. The Nintendo Wii U version is being handled by the Ubisoft Romania studio. You can check out a set of screenshots from the new intellectual property in the slideshow near the top of this article.
