It’s confirmed! The Assassin’s Creed Origins world is linked with Watch Dogs! This was supported by evidence that can be found in the “modern day section” of the game.
In the “modern day section” you will find a laptop that contains old files from Abstergo Industries employees. In case you are not familiar, Abstergo Industries is owned by Olivier Garneau. He plays a major role in Black Flag’s modern-day section, and the story shows him travelling to Chicago where Watch Dogs is set. In the first Watch Dogs game, Garneau appears as an Easter egg, and Aiden Pearce can actually kill him.
So how does this link to Assassin’s Creed? Well, in Assassin’s Creed Origins, the laptop that contains old files includes a photograph of a CCTV footage. The photo shows Aiden Pearce as he stands over Garneau’s body.
