Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was one of the most anticipated games of the 2013 holiday season, but the game was delayed at the last minute. According to a post on WatchDogForums from Jan. 25, it appears that the wait for Watch Dogs may be a bit longer than one would have anticipated with Noam Jenkins, voice of Watch Dogs protagonist Aiden Pearce, disclosing that his work on the title may not be completed until May or June of 2014.
When asked by a fan on Twitter if recording Aiden’s voice for Watch Dogs was completed, Jenkins responded by sharing that he has been told his work will be done in May or June. Based on this bit of information, if he doesn’t finish his work on Watch Dogs until May or June, that would mean Watch Dogs wouldn’t release until the late summer or early fall.

@MadsDroger I've been told May or June.
On the contrary, GameKeysNow is reporting that multiple source have told them that Watch Dogs will see release on Friday, April 25.
Watch Dogs was previously scheduled to release in Nov. 2013 for PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC. However, the title was delayed in order to receive extra development time and polish, though some speculate Ubisoft delayed Watch Dogs in order to avoid being overshadowed by Grand Theft Auto 5.
Ubisoft has not announced or discussed a new release date for Watch Dogs.
