Watch Dogs to Become a Franchise, Expect Sequels in the Future

By   /   Jul 15, 2013

Expect sequels and more installments to happen in the future for Watch Dogs.

Speaking to List Daily today, Ubisoft’s senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key said that they do not create games unless it can be turned into a franchise. A pretty bold statement if I might add seeing that the game hasn’t been even released yet.

“That’s what all our games are about; we won’t even start if we don’t think we can build a franchise out of it. There’s no more fire and forget – it’s too expensive,” he said.

Watch Dogs’ release is pretty much timed with that of GTA V, which is probably the most anticipated title of the year. Even Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima accepted that the new GTA has just raised the bar to new heights. Internet warriors are already arguing over which title will get the most sales. Ubisoft though feels fairly confident that it will blow away any rivals out of the pool.

“We feel like we’re in a really good place with Watch_Dogs, but until we’re the biggest game of the year we’re not going to be satisfied.” Tony continued “Last year we cleaned up at E3 because we were pretty much the only next-gen game around. Watch_Dogs for us is really a franchise because we’re tapping into something people really care about, never more than when the NSA PRISM scandal broke.”

Which one are you going for – Watch Dogs or GTA V?
