Watch Dogs out this holiday for “all home consoles,” says leaked GameStop poster [Update]

"A truly next-gen adventure," reads G4 quote on back.

Watch Dogs, Ubisoft Montreal’s new IP announced at E3 last year, will be out this holiday season for “all home consoles,” according to leaked marketing materials published by Kotaku.

Of course, what one defines as “all home consoles” may vary. It could mean PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. Or PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Next Xbox, and Wii U. Heck, even the original Wii is a still-popular home console. A quote from G4TV on the back of the poster calls the game a “truly next-gen adventure,” which could suggest it’s a sole next-gen release. But we’re just spit-balling.

A “Power Up Rewards Exclusive” badge in the top right corner of the back suggests the marketing material is from GameStop. That said, consumers who pre-order the game there will get “exclusive content.”

We’ll contact Ubisoft for comment.

Update: Ubisoft has neither confirmed or denied the validity of the poster’s claims.

“Ubisoft is pleased with the response for Watch Dogs from media and fans. The game is an original IP that has been created from the ground up at Ubisoft Montreal with inspiration from many titles and ideas the studio has worked on throughout the years.”
