Pachter: Watch Dogs Was “Headed For Disaster” Before Delay

Watch Dogs was supposed to launch late last year, but Ubisoft opted to delay it at the last minute, a move Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter believes saved a game that was "headed for disaster."

On the latest episode of the Bonus Round, the analyst said of Ubisoft's decision to delay the game:

I admire them. Their stock got hammered. The management got criticized. And that franchise matters; it sounds really good. And if it doesn’t work, it’s a big waste of time and waste of money. So I’m hopeful that that six month delay makes that game great. But I think that was headed for disaster.

Do you think Ubisoft's decision to delay the game will ultimately work out for the best? If they had rushed it out in time for the 2013 holiday season would it have turned out to be a "disaster" for the studio?
