Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was initially scheduled to launch in November 2013, but at the last moment was delayed. The reason that was provided to press for delay from Ubisoft was, “development team needs some extra time for polishing”.

Watch DogsToday Entertainment Software Rating Board “ESRB” has RE-RATED Watch Dogs giving out some more details regarding sexual and nudity content that will feature in the game. This also pretty much confirms that polishing was not the only reason for delay and development team made some massive changes from November 2013 build.

The official descriptors of Watch Dogs now reads as “Blood, Intense Violence, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs and Alcohol.” Previously it was: “Blood, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language.”

Read below new rating summary for nudity and sexual content details:

This is third-person shooter/action game in which players assume the role of Aiden Pearce, a hacker trying to find an evil mastermind. Players use pistols, machine guns, assault rifles, and explosives to kill various human enemies (e.g., criminals, police officers). When close to an enemy, players are able to shoot them in the head or knock them out with a black jack. Players have the ability to kill captives after (mostly) off-screen interrogations. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence (e.g., a man stabbed in the neck and shot multiple times). Combat is highlighted by cries of pain, blood-splatter effects, and realistic gunfire. The game includes several depictions of topless female characters. One prolonged scene depicts a topless women standing in a bedroom; another sequence depicts close-ups of topless women sitting down. The game also includes a few instances of sexual activity, including an obscured depiction of masturbation; a woman performing fellatio on a man; and a man thrusting against a woman from behind—camera angles obscure the sex act and no nudity is shown. During the course of the game, the central character is sometimes consumes large amounts of alcohol (the screen turns blurry); one sequence depicts characters using needles to inject themselves with drugs. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.
