PS4 double-punched by two game delays? Watch Dogs delayed, Driveclub also rumoured to be having problems

We learned last night that Ubisoft’s next blockbuster, Watch Dogs is being delayed until early next year – having previously been pencilled in for the same day as the PS4’s release on November 22nd. This has been compounded by rumours that Driveclub, a first party title by Sony, could also be heading, er, down the same road.

This will come a blow to gamers eager to get their hands on Watch Dogs. Since the game was unveiled a couple of years ago we’ve been salivating at the prospect of playing the futuristic open-world stealth and action game that’s centred around themes of hacking and surveillance (what could possibly have given them that idea?).

And Driveclub too will be a loss. As it’s a first party Sony title, this would have been the few next-gen games to differentiate the PS4 from the Xbox One – could this blunt Sony’s head start?

The game itself does sound fun – so it’s a shame we may not get to see it this side of Christmas. Driveclub whilst not a simulator like Gran Turismo, is not Mario Kart either – and instead aims to hit a nice spot between realism and fun.

We’ll keep you updated if we hear any confirmation either way.
