Ubisoft Announces Watch_Dogs Bad Blood DLC

ubisoft canadaUbisoft has announced that Watch_Dogs Bad Blood, a new downloadable piece of content for Watch_Dogs, the record-breaking open-world action game that has sold-in more than 8 million units, will release on September 23 for season pass holders and September 30 for all other players. Unfortunately it’s a totally moot point for those of us wanting the Wii U edition of the game, because it has yet to be released, even though Ubi keeps promising a 2014 release date. Well – the hype for the game is pretty well all but over, unless the developer is hoping to capitalize on the holiday release frenzy. I’m not impressed with the delay – I just hope that it’s worth the wait.
