Yesterday, a brand new video for Watch Dogs was unveiled, showing off Aisha Tyler getting hit by a truck. Unfortunately, the short clip looked pretty bad in the visuals department and was a far cry from previous footage for the November release.
To clear up any confusion regarding what was released yesterday, Jonathan Morin, Creative Director on Watch Dogs, took to his Twitter account and said, “I see the game every day and I can tell you, this trailer is far from it.” When asked if this trailer was based off the current generation version, he replied, “Current gen is better than that.”
He then explained how it was published in that state:
“You know sometimes 100s of people working together causes communications issues lets just say that ;).”
“Its simply someone who don’t know the tech who check the wrong stuff.”
Jonathan added that the situation “was indeed hilarious in its own way I guess” and when someone referenced the spotty performance during Jimmy Fallon, he said, “[an] unfinished game remains unfinished. But we still want to show the real thing each time. It must be real.” As for console specific versions of the game, the PS4 version is “millions of miles away” from the now infamous video, while the Wii U version “should be fine” when it comes to outperforming PS3/Xbox 360.
