Watch Dogs 2 delayed on PC

Watch Dogs 2 is set to launch everywhere on the 15th of November... unless you're living in PC land.

The word direct from Ubisoft is that the PC version of the game has been delayed to the 29th of November. According to a blog post this extra time is going to be used "for additional polish and will help ensure the game runs smoothly across a broad range of PC hardware."

They are never bad things when it comes to a major release on the minefield-like PC system, so we're going to go ahead and say this is good news. The post also confirmed the minimum specs for the game, along with expected but welcome features like 4K display support, no frame rate cap and extra graphics options.
