Ubisoft has responded to the accusations of fans that their upcoming open world game hacking game Watch Dogs has suffered from a severe visual downgrade since the first gameplay footage was shown at E3 2012. Ubisoft Benelux PR manager Tessa Vilyn publically spoke out on Twitter via a series of tweets stating that it's just not true.
Via Videogamer, Vilyn said "Of course it's not downgraded at all. It's a true next gen game for sure." She continued, "Believe me the game is not downgraded. That would just be a bit rediculous. I saw the game and it looks incredible."
After new gameplay footage was revealed for Watch Dogs in the last week, and a comparison disseminated in gif form, many gamers accused the publisher of false advertising, stating that the game was visually downgraded from the previous gameplay demos that have been shown.
Watch Dogs releases worldwide May 27 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. The Wii U release date is still unconfirmed.
