Ubisoft’s forthcoming Open-World Action title Watch Dogs which primarily revolves around hacking to progress through the game will not support any cheat codes.
In response to a fan’s query as to whether the game will support cheat codes or not, Watch Dogs’ Creative Director Jonathan Morin stated clearly stated that there won’t be any possibility.
@WatchDogsHQ No we did not put cheat codes.

When we talk about previous Open-World titles by Ubisoft, both Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag had cheats incorporated in the game. These cheats were unlocked by completing different sets of challenges and provided players with boosts like God Mode, Unlimited Ammo, Drunk Mode, etc.
Furthermore, Watch Dogs’ biggest rival and one of the pioneers of Open-World titles; Rockstar Games has always incorporated cheat codes in their games like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption.
In related news, Ubisoft has confirmed that the Playstation 4 Version of the game will run at native 1080p resolution with 30 Frames per Second. No information was provided about the Xbox One version, but it is suggested that it will run somewhere near 900p.
Watch Dogs is slated to release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, and PC on May 27, 2014. A Wii U version is also in the works, but no release window has been provided; though if a listing on Uplay is to be believed, the Wii U Version will ship during fall this year.
