Ubisoft's share price slumped by 26 per cent in the hours following the announcement that it had delayed Watch Dogs and The Crew into its next financial year, the BBC reports.

Ubisoft confirmed that Watch Dogs had been pushed back from November 22 to spring 2014 on Tuesday, explaining that it "needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience."

The Crew was delayed for quality purposes too, and now won't see a release until at least July next year. It had previously been due to launch in early 2014.

Absolutely - those are my two as well, along with Forza 5.

Don't think the GTA effect can be overstated. Always seemed like a weird move on Ubi's part to have Watch Dogs and Assassin's releasing so close to each other as well.

Fingers crossed that The Division doesn't slip into 2015 as both that and Destiny are really the two big reasons to upgrade to next gen for me so far.

The problem for both titles is that something currently in development might release in the meantime and make both respective developers think "Damn, we gotta raise our game'.

I think in Watchdog's case GTA V might have taken a bit of wind out of their sails/sales.
