Update: IGN has prematurely put up an ad banner for Watch Dogs 2, which reveals the game’s release date – November 15, 2016. That ad has since been taken down, but Eurogamer managed to captured a screenshot (see below).
The banner also shows the game’s masked protagonist against the backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, confirming rumours that Watch Dogs 2 will be set in San Francisco.
The existence of Watch Dogs 2 has been leaked by multiple sources, and Ubisoft has now decided to reveal the game before its E3 showing next week.
After a lot of pre-release hype Watch Dogs wasn’t particularly well received by critics (though it did earn a solid 8/10 here on IVG), but still went on to sell over 8 million units.
Rumours suggest Watch Dogs 2 will feature a new spectacled protagonist and will shift settings from Chicago to San Francisco.
We’ll know more tomorrow. Until then check out this bizzare teaser.
