GameStop Contacting Those Who Pre-Ordered Watch Dogs PS4/Xbox One Bundles, Offering Alternatives

When it comes to the Watch Dogs delay and what it means for everyone who pre-ordered PS4/Xbox One console bundles where the game was included, we’ve already heard from Sony and Ubisoft, who gave fairly vague answers, with Amazon saying:

For those of you who pre-order the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle—don’t worry—you will still be getting your Playstation 4 (without Watch Dogs) based on your current delivery estimate. We are adjusting the orders now and will update you once we know more.

At GameStop, they are being very proactive when it comes to those affected by the delay, issuing this statement (via IGN), which reveals their plans:

With the news that Ubisoft has delayed the release of the highly-anticipated title Watch Dogs until next year, GameStop is contacting customers who had reserved PlayStation 4 and Xbox One bundles featuring the game. Customers can elect to keep their current bundle orders and their consoles will ship as scheduled with the game shipping separately once it is available or customers can choose another bundle to replace their current order. Customers should also note that there may be a difference in the price if selecting another bundle and that all reserved orders will be charged upon shipment.
