[Update: If you're curious about those PlayStation 4 or Xbox One bundles that you pre-ordered GameStop and Amazon have both released a statement detailing what they'll be doing.]

Ubisoft has pushed two of its high-profile titles, Watch Dogs and The Crew, off until its next fiscal year. Watch Dogs was originally slated to help round out this year's annual holiday crush in late November. The Crew never had a formal release date, but was expected in the first quarter of 2014.

Now, both of them are expected sometime after April 1, 2014. With regard to Watch Dogs, the development team said "We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience."

The Watch Dogs news doesn't come as much of a surprise, given that Ubisoft hasn't ramped-up the marketing as one would expect with a game that's set to come out in a month. However, it's quite the blow for people that were looking forward to picking it up alongside an Xbox One or PS4.

Watch Dogs is sticking to 30 FPS on Xbox One, PS4

Is it wrong to go into this next console generation with the expectation that games will achieve 60 frames per second? I hope not. But I still feel like I'm setting myself up for disappointment here. Take Watch Dogs, for inst...

Sony details PS3-to-PS4 game upgrade process

My gut reaction to the news that certain games would be "upgradable" to their next-generation counterparts, whether that be on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, was that the savings had better be significant. And they are! If you bu...

Jimquisition: Sequel or Slaughter
by Jim Sterling

Must every new videogame become a sequel-spawning franchise? Is it through necessity, or simple avarice that mainstream game development makes it so?

A little dash of jarnalizm, a spoonful of introspection, and two massive barrels of furious indignation bore to the core of this subject, in the only way Jimquisition knows how -- brutally. And without mercy.
