Posted on March 31, 2014, Mike Sharkey Ubisoft Squashes Watch Dogs Demo Rumor

So will Ubisoft be testing out its eight-player, freeroam multiplayer mode in Watch Dogs with a demo?

No. No it will not.

With a post on Twitter, Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Jonathan Morin drove a stake into the rumor’s dark heart:

@Rawfan306 Dude relax, I receive too much tweets… They are no demo planned before release. Sorry for the wait, doing my best…

Asked why there would be no Watch Dogs demo, Morin responded:

@DJPork Doing Demos take time, the focus is on the game. You will see more footage before release. Be patient & thanks for your passion. :)

At this point, it appears if there is any testing of Watch Dogs’ multiplayer before launch, it will be in beta form. In early March, a number of Xbox One gamers spotted a Watch Dogs closed beta on the Xbox Store. The listing was quickly removed, but Ubisoft has yet to respond to questions about a closed beta. Given that Watch Dogs is set for release in just two months (May 27), we should find out for sure soon.
