As much as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 might suffer from the delay of Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, that may seem minor compared to the impact to the publisher itself. Ubisoft's shares have taken a pounding today, with the company's stock trading down 22 percent to $2.27 as of this writing.
The Watch Dogs delay may be the most disappointing news for gamers, but it was just one of a number of Ubisoft setbacks for investors. The publisher also pushed its open-world racing game The Crew into the next fiscal year, and revealed that recent releases Rayman Legends and Splinter Cell: Blacklist have failed to meet the company's sales expectations. Those factors put together were reason enough for Ubisoft to lower its full-year sales forecast more than €400 million, or about 30 percent.
