Watch Dogs 2 is Happening!
After months of speculations and rumors going around, Ubisoft finally confirms that a sequel to the 2014 open world third-person shooter action-adventure game, Watch Dogs, is going to be released before April 2017. Ubisoft confirmed it through their latest financial report. Major gaming websites such as PCGamer previously reported what appears to be the start of development of Watch Dogs 2 through a Ubisoft senior gameplay designer’s LinkedIn profile. The said entry to his profile has since been removed, and the speculation simply died down.
While no other details (such as specific dates or seasons) on when the game will be officially released, Ubisoft confirmed that the game will be included among notable Ubisoft games which will be released within the fiscal year. The fiscal year runs from April 1, 2016 until March 31, 2017.
The financial report also confirmed that there won’t be an Assassin’s Creed game that will be released this year, citing the decision to “give the brand a new dimension” as the reason. The third quarter of 2016 saw a “slower launch than expected” specifically for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate during the third quarter of 2015-2016.
