A now deleted tweet from retailer GAME has quite possibly confirmed the release date for Watch Dogs.
Videogamer has spotted a swiftly removed tweet from GAME’s Eastleigh branch saying that the game will be released on May 27th.
With Ubisoft having already confirmed a delay for the Wii U version, it’s likely that this date applies to the game on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and possibly PC – although it’s not unknown for Ubisoft’s PC releases to arrive slightly after console.
Mounting evidence gathered earlier this week pointing towards an imminent Watch Dogs related announcement.
It’s the second time in a week that GAME has seemingly mistakenly revealed news ahead of time.

SCEE’s VP of third party relations Michael Pattison added: We’re really excited for the launch of Watch Dogs on both PS3 and PS4 and are confident that it will prove to be one of the standout games of 2014.
