News of Ubisoft's Watch Dogs delay would likely have been greeted through gritted teeth by a large number of retail workers.
Having spent lots of time over the last two weeks convincing customers who have pre-ordered a PS4 to upgrade to a Watch Dogs bundle, they now face the prospect of contacting them yet again and figuring out what can be offered in substitution.
In the US Amazon has told customers that they'll keep their PS4 pre-order, stating: All orders for the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle will keep their place in line and we will fulfil the PlayStation 4 (without the Watch Dogs game) in accordance with your current delivery estimate.
We are working on adjusting these orders and will update you as soon as we know more."
GameStop has told Polygon, meanwhile, that customers can either change to an alternative bundle (possibly at a different price) or stick with it and receive the game when it eventually comes out.
UK retail has yet to announce its plans.
