No Watch Dogs demo before launch, says creative director

Monday, 31st March 2014 20:25 GMT By Sherif Saed

Watch Dogs will not be getting a demo before launch, Jonathan Morin, creative director of the title has confirmed.

Answering a fan question on Twitter about the existence of a demo, he said, “[There is] no demo planned before release. Sorry for the wait.”

He later explained to another fan that the reason for the decision, is that demos “take time,” while promising to release more footage of the game closer to launch.

The upcoming open-world game recently received a Welcome to Chicago trailer which was later confirmed to contain footage from a PS4 Devkit footage by the same man.

Watch Dogs will be out on on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One at the end of May with no date for the Wii U version.

Thanks, Gamespot, Polygon.

    For a game that is completely open from the start, a demo would be difficult.
    Anyway, looking forward to it.

    No demo means u have to buy the game to see what it’s like.

    There are no demo’s of anything available any more, certainly not on the ps4 store unless you count indie stuff.
    It has become…… shall we say……..unfashionable to expose your product to critical scrutiny before launch, the official playstation and xbox magazines used to carry on disc demos, but that gone south long since, cant honestly say either magazine is worth £5.99 without the disc, bottom line, bide your time and wait for which ever review/reviewer you trust, if the publishers/developers are unwilling to let the buying public sample their wares, or place gagging orders on the gaming press before the full price product hits the shelves,
    then avoid until such time as you can make a balanced and informed decision based your prefered and trusted reviewer, its your £50 after all.
