So what happens when your product is unanimously accepted as the best thing at E3? Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft has stated that after their showcase of Watch Dogs, developer Ubisoft Montreal was pretty much given whatever they needed to bring about the best game possible.
Speaking with MCV, Guillemot said that Watch Dogs’ popularity rose considerably after its “revelation” at E3. As a result the team’s size was increased, as well as being given “all the capacity they wanted to fulfill their dream.”
“You always have great ideas, but you need enough people to bring it to life. After E3, we really made sure they had all the teams they needed and it’s an open world, that is well-adapted to what people want to play today. So there’s good potential for success,” he said.
Watch Dogs is currently confirmed for a release on the PS3, PS4, PC, Wii U and Xbox 360. It’s more than likely that after Microsoft’s announcement of their new Xbox, the game will be heading for that console as well.
