Earlier this week, Ubisoft announced that the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 will be delayed by two weeks and it will now release on November 29, 2016 instead of November 15, 2016.

The delay will affect only the release of Watch Dogs 2 for PC, while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will be released as scheduled, on November 15th.

On the official blog, the publisher of Watch Dogs 2, also explained why the company decided to postpone the release of the latest Watch Dogs title.

“Watch Dogs 2 features a multitude of PC-specific enhancements, including support or full 4K resolution with Ultra Textures and Extra Details options; an uncapped framerate; and a host of other features and options specifically requested by the Watch Dogs 2 community.

To ensure that these and other features are polished and optimized to meet the development team’s standards, the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 will now be released on November 29.”

If you are a PC gamer, you will probably be upset about this delay; however, there is also good news for you.
