Poor Ubisoft. It seems every year they cannot catch a break with their unannounced projects leaked ahead of schedule time and time again.
Although everyone has long suspected a new Watch Dogs game set in London, this morning it became a sure thing after a product listing for Watch Dogs Legion was spotted on Amazon UK, ruining my predictions article set for publication later tonight in the process. There’s just something about online stores and E3 that doesn’t seem to work.
The listing gives us a small snippet of what to expect from the upcoming title:
- Play as anyone, Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems.
- Watch_Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London. It’s a post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes. London is one of the most iconic cities in the world and has had a massive influence on all of Western Culture for centuries… London makes total sense for WD, as the city has one of the highest surveillce levels in the world making this the perfect playground.
As someone who enjoyed Watch Dogs 1 and Watch Dogs 2, the premise for Legion is very intriguing, especially the setting and the ability to play as anyone in the world. I am excited to see the game in action at E3 next week.
