Watch Dogs Screenshot Hints Link to Assassin’s Creed Franchise, How?

Last Friday, Gamespot revealed a few screenshots of Aiden Pierce’s smartphone User Interface in Watch Dogs.

One of the Reddit users named ‘Kurashu’ managed to find the link within these screenshots to the Assassins Creed series.

One icon in particular resembles a lot to the Assassins Order symbol from Assassin Creed series and it has been blurred out in both of the screenshots, which means that either Ubisoft is hiding something or they just want to mess with their fans.

In the images below, see the first image and look at the app on the bottom left corner of the UI of Aiden Pierce’s phone, then we turn the image upside down to unveil the Assassins Creed Symbol.

There have been rumors before, which indicated that Watch Dogs and Assassins Creed games exist in the same universe but we are not sure how the symbol from the AC series relates to the upcoming Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs is scheduled to release for Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PC on 27th of May.

What do you think the link is between Watch Dogs and Assassins Creed? Will it have something to do with Abstergo? Share your theories with us in the comments below!
