The leak comes ahead of an official announcement from Ubisoft, expected at 5pm today.

The tweet has since been removed, but the first few words can be recovered by entering the URL into a Facebook status update, as pictured above.

The date is expected to apply to the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC versions, with a Wii U release due to follow at a later date.

Ubisoft told that it did not comment on rumour or speculation when contacted about a release date earlier today.

If you disagree with my opinion then that's fine - say so and then we can birth a discussion (no homo!) - the reason this forum exists!

Also, I'd have to be a very dedicated troll to have over 5000 posts, but I digress.

This trailer was, as I said, mediocre. It's so clichéd it's unreal. They took everything from me / I'll take everything from them etc. There was a lot of things we've seen before just from different angles - the car crashing into the bollard. Remember the first time we saw that? Pretty cool, eh? But now I've seen it multiple times since the game's reveal almost 2 years ago and it's old.

And that's my issue with it - Ubi were acting like Barry Big Bolocks when GTA was released (2 months is enough in Los Santos etc...) and then they delayed the game. Now they desperately need to build hype with this trailer being a good way to do so, but they failed in doing so.

lol so are you some sort of anti troll, trolling the trolls :)

People are allowed to say something looks rubbish when it does. We should not be forced to worship something with rose tinted glasses like it's our duty, for fear of being branded a troll by you.

It's like that children's story of the king with no clothes. A tailor cons him by making him an invisible suit and says only those with an honest good heart can see it. So everyone is claiming they can see the suit, but I just say what I see. The fools in the nude. You can call me a troll if it makes you feel better, but he's still in the nude …lol

If the PS4 gets the same awesome quality shown in the Watch Dogs trailer above I'll be happy, but the PS4 gameplay video shown just before the game was pulled had coarse graphics with bland monotone textures. Let's hope they used the delay to fixed it. Is that trolling?

I'm really interested in this game because I love open world games, but let's hope the delay has improved the awful image quality shown in the PS4 gameplay video shown just before the game was pulled. It looked nothing like the first trailer with beautiful bokeh depth of field blur. The PS4 version looked very coarse with bland monotone textures like a PS3 game. In fact GTAV had awesome image quality on PS3 and looked like a PS4 game.

The game I have been waiting for since last year now gets a release date. Honestly, the game's story is a blast by just looking at the launch trailer.

Hopefully the game will be released with few or no bugs at all, this game has been delayed for so long with a lot of work and polish.

I'm putting all my savings for May 27 with this game!

Who's with me?! :D

Tuesday make sence if its a world wide release since most games come out in the US on Tuesdays, normally we here in the UK have to wait till friday. cant wait till May now

And what a generic trailer it was. This was Ubi's chance to try and redeem some hype and it's gone. The trailer was so middle of the road it's unreal. Unless reviews are sparkling this is a wait until it's £18 game.

GAME leaking more details just ahead of the official announcement, it's like they don't give a ***** anymore.

May 27th falls on a Tuesday so can we be certain of this news?
I was really hoping for something sooner but at least we may now have a date. I just hope Drive Club gets a much earlier release.
