"Watch Dogs 2's" release date for the PC platform, is confirmed to be delayed from the planned launch date with the Xbox One and PS4 consoles. According to reports, Ubisoft is currently working on a number of features exclusive only to the PC version. However, the game may not likely get a PS4 Pro support.

The "Watch Dogs 2" on the PC is confirmed to launch on Nov. 29 following the release of the game for console versions. The delay is due to the extra time given by the developer to complete and make sure that the game sequel will run smoothly on the PC. Reports suggest that the PC version gets a full 4K resolution support and extra visual options like Extra Details and Ultra Textures.

"Watch Dogs 2" PC version is expected to have driving features that will be adapted for mouse and keyboard, as well as adjustable steering sensitivity.  The gamepad support is reported to allow players to switch between mouse and keyboard and controller. The PC requirements include 6GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5-2400S or AMD FX-6120 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870.  The required specs include 8GB of RAM, at least a GTX 970, GTX 780, R9 290 or GTX 1060 and an Intel Core i5-3470 or AMD FX-8120.

The PC version of "Watch Dogs 2" will be launched on Nov. 29, while the Xbox One and PS4 versions will be released on Nov. 15. Meantime, the game may not get a PS4 Pro support as confirmed by Ubisoft, according to report.

Meanwhile, Sony has confirmed that some AMD roadmap features will appear for the first time in the new PS4 Pro. The company said that developers working on a PS4 Pro game may select between two techniques that use the ID buffer to increase the image quality. Furthermore, nine titles due to get PS4 Pro support are reported to use the checkerboard rendering, which is more intensive, but gives increased detail in special effects and textures. PS4 Pro is rolling out Nov. 10 for $399, WCCFTech reported. Watch a video about "Watch Dogs 2" system requirements here:
