Following its official release date announcement yesterday, Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs multiplayer will support up to eight players in an open world environment.
The confirmation came in a recent tweet from creative director Jonathan Morin, who works out of Ubisoft Montreal. There are no details on whether there will be structured activities for players to participate in, or whether the format will follow the cat-and-mouse-style of the single-player mode.
The multi-gen cyberpunk title has generated considerable controversy since delaying its release in November 2013. The game was originally positioned as a launch title for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and many fans had pre-ordered it as part of a bundle.
Last month, Ubisoft further confused the media by seemingly abandoning the game’s trademark. The developer claimed fraud and have since ironed the whole issue out.
Watch Dogs is now set to release on May 27 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The Wii U release date remains unannounced.
