Ubisoft says that false reviews of the game have been circulating.
After a website recently posted their review of Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, despite the game not being officially released or other more established publications having revealed their reviews yet, Ubisoft issued a statement warning against false reviews for the game circulating prior to release.
This came via the game’s official Twitter, which stated that, “Hackers have attempted to infiltrate our system and post false reviews of Watch Dogs. All valid reviews will emerge at release on May 27_”
You could argue that this is damage control considering said website gave Watch Dogs a rating of 7.2 out of 10 (what’s the 0.2 for? No clue). Then again, it’s safer to wait for official reviews and – more importantly – play the game yourself before jumping to conclusions.
Watch Dogs will be releasing on May 27th for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Are you picking it up on day one of its release? Let us know in the comments.
