Watch Dogs‘ release date delay is finally drawing to a close, according to Ubisoft’s Gary Steinman.

Watch Dogs looked like an incredibly promising next-gen launch title from all the early gameplay footage we saw last year. Unfortunately, that whole launch title thing didn’t work out so well once Ubisoft pushed back the launch date to give its game some extra polish. Whether the delay was necessary or not, Ubisoft has finally revealed there’s just another two months to wait: Watch Dogs‘ official release date is now May 27, 2014.

Along with the release date is a new story trailer explaining Aiden Pearce’s motivation for hacking Chicago like a technological wizard. Now the only question left is what system players should turn to: Between current generation consoles, next-gen heavyweights, demanding PC specs, and the ability to play off-screen using the Wii U gamepad, there will be no shortage of options once Watch Dogs finally hits store shelves.
