It appears that the release dates for Watch Dogs and Driveclub have been leaked by ShopTo. By checking their website, the following information can be found:
- Watch Dogs Release Date – 21st March 2014
- Driveclub Release Date – 28th February 2014
What’s most interesting is that a carbon copy of the following Guarantee can be found on both pages: “We are so confident that you will receive [your game] for [release date shown above] that if for ANY reason you do not we will compensate you with £5.00 to your account.” Both have the clause that the game must be preordered by 12pm two days before release, but that doesn’t really matter. Order now and you’ll be guaranteed the game no later than the ‘leaked’ dates, or be given £5.
You’d assume that they must be pretty sure of the release date otherwise they could stand to lose a lot from this guarantee. This will make the decisions that gamers will have to make next March even tougher. That time period puts these games in direct contention with Titanfall, InFamous: Second Son and Thief. Does it change any of your plans, or make your decisions harder? Let us know in the comments.
