Ubisoft please fix origin error, which states that in South East Asia region game will be released on 27th June, not 27(28) May! 2 days ago, date was correct 28th May but now it is 27th June. South East Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia) don't need Chinese, Korean, or Japanese localisation. Please, fix origin error or we won't be able to play. People who pre-ordered from local shop will be able to play but we won't be able to play because of Origin.

Hi,

June 26th is the correct date for the game, and has been for some time - for both retail and digital, if origin have only just updated, you should contact them directly and ask.

Then explain to me, how come steam shows correct day for SEA?? Thee is definitely something wrong. Official Ubisoft news states that 26th June only for some Asian Regions. Everyone and every retailer in Malaysia/Singapore is sure that game releases on 27th May.

Steam: 27th May in Approximately 20 hours.
Origin: 27th June.

Then I can only suggest - you contact Origin support - ask them to cancel and then you can order from steam.


I can only repeat the official dates - which is the 26th of June, however I do not work for that region, so can only repeat that.

Yes I agree with you. Guys just cancel your pre-order in origin, and buy from your local retailers while you have time. Both ubisoft and origin are lying to us. I will do it right now, ubisoft and EA show their worst support ever, they cannot even contact anyone to check REAL DATE FOR SEA! They don't care about us, simply make SEA as all ASIAN REGIONS!

Even if you won't have deluxe edition, who cares, better something than nothing!

Mr_Shade, find someone, who works for with region! If you cannot help us.

Man you guys are confrontational. Always go through the retailer you bought it from when there's issues like this one before going to ubi.

Try saying that when Ubisoft essentially did a bait-and-switch move. They changed the release date hours before the release here. They released press statements about watch dogs coming out on 27 may for singapore, yet they changed it on 27th may itself to 26 june.

Release the damn game, then deal with localization issues. Shoddy business practice

I don't understand why they need to region restrict on SEA with ASIA when most of SEA countries are using English as our main language... It is understandable that Ubisoft are working hard on localized language, but it is quite unacceptable for Ubi to be negligent of not making sure that the resellers wouldn't mistakenly block the wrong regions from official release? But seriously, why even have region restriction in the first place?

If it has been June 26th for some time, please explain why at this very moment it says May 28th on the Official PlayStation Store website (Malaysia) AND on the PlayStation Store on my ps4 (in Malaysia). Clearly it is not a mistake by Origin if PlayStation.com displays the same information.

Please get your facts straight -- I appreciate that you are now seeking assistance from the proper regional team but it's disappointing to see such statement, which obviously contradicts facts, coming from Ubisoft.

I understand that the Chinese Version of the game is coming out in June; but I sure hope that we're not all doomed to play the Chinese version, being Asians and all.

Link to PS Store Website (Malaysia):
http://asia.playstation.com/my/en/regional/gamedetails?id=24822

Malaysian gamers, if you can access the PS Store on your PS4 (not sure if it'll be the same for Singapore & Indonesia), go to the "Coming Soon" page and you should see an ad for Watch Dogs and it should show a May 28th release.

Mr Shade, thank you for that reply, but I would like to say that this issue has happened on Steam as well. I also say that either you (Ubi) or they are not being straight with your customers. I am inclined to believe that, in this instance, Ubi is the issue. Given the experience that Ubi Has in terms of providing games to Asian gamers, I highly doubt that Ubi has issues with making sure that we in Singapore and Malaysia are stuck now because we have to wait for a CHINESE version of the game. We would like the truth (or a solution) please, and soon.

So who is telling the truth?

I think physical copies work but I'm not sure about digital copies. I bought it on Steam and I'm locked until the release date.

I'm pissed because I don't even live in Asia, I just happen to be here for the summer (granted I should have looked a bit more closely at the release date, but most Steam games nowadays all release on the same date globally). I don't think a lot of the gamers here need localisation and can play in English just fine.
