With GTA V already out, many gamers are very interested to see what Ubisoft can do with Watch Dogs. Especially those who plan to pick up the open-world game on PC since we still don’t know the status of GTA V on PC. Fans are eager to find out what kind of specs they will need to run the game successfully, but it appears that there are conflicting details being posted online that are still not accurate.
If you have been keeping a close eye on the PC version during development, you may have been aware that apparent PC specs were thought to have been disclosed in full courtesy of Ubisoft and their UPlay listing for the game online.
We initially saw basic spec requirements such as a DirectX 11 graphics card with 1 GB Video RAM, a 64bit operating system, a quad-core processor and at least 4GB of RAM available. Recommended specs then altered the requirements to the above but with 2GB Video RAM, an eight core processor and 8GB of RAM.
However, we’ve since heard that this is not official specs for the game, despite appearing on Ubisoft’s site. A Tweet from one of the game’s developers has said that the real specs will be released soon and that they won’t be as demanding as the UPlay initially suggested.
@Pixel67_FR Hello. Ce ne sont pas les configs officielles. Les vraies specs sortiront bientôt et seront moins élevées que celles-ci

If the real specs turn out to be similar than the ones mentioned above, then ultra settings could require you to be in possession of graphic cards such as a Nvidia GTX 670 or AMD Radeon HD 7970 – combined with processors such as the Intel Intel Core i7-3930K or AMD FX-9370 Eight-Core.
How long does Ubisoft intend to keep us waiting though if the specs are supposedly not real? Let us know if you intend to play this game on PC. Will you be fine running the game, or do you think you will need to upgrade?
