Was Watch Dogs delayed on all platforms due to the XBone's inability to perform?

How likely is the following scenario;

The XBone version wasn't able to perform to the next-gen spec due to its inability to perform on the level of PS4 and PC, so Microsoft paid Ubisoft for the consideration to push out the release date for further XBone optimization.

I'm betting that when it gets closer to the 2014 release date, we'll begin to see gameplay footage that looks much worse than what is currently being shown, a la GTA V. Also, it's curious that there is zero footage of XBone hardware running Watch Dogs; all footage is from the PS4 or PC.

I posted this on the XBone board and someone suggested that they wouldn't even need to pay for it, due to some agreement that publishers are forced to sign with Microsoft, disallowing the appearance of a multiplatform game on other consoles prior to appearing on an MS one.

How likely is the following scenario;

far less likely than ubisoft not wanting to compete with itself

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

My guess? GTA V is coming to the next-gen consoles at launch they did not want to compete.

So you're saying they have some kind of insider information upon which they are basing this move?

Nah, I doubt it.

No, you can steal cars so it's the exact same game as GTAV.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
