With the first Watch Dogs, Ubisoft tried and failed. The game wasn’t perfect by any means but Ubisoft is expected to do better with the sequel. The company has talked about the possibility of another Watch Dogs in the past, but it is yet to formally confirm the game.
Considering that its Ubisoft, we can definitely expect Watch Dogs to become a regular thing. Like I said, the game is yet to be announced but it seems a Ubisoft employee accidently leaked the game.
Senior Gameplay Programmer Julien Risse, mentioned on his LinkedIn CV that he worked on Watch Dogs 2. Along with the sequel, he helped with Watch Dogs and Bad Blood DLC.
CEO Yves Guillemot suggested last year that the game may be in development. However, this is the first time the word “Watch Dogs 2” has been used to refer to the sequel.
At the time Guillemot suggested that Watch Dogs lead Aiden Pearce may not be back for the sequel. Fans didn’t like Aiden but it is understandable that not everyone can be pleased.
Ubisoft annualized Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry is rumored to be heading in that direction as well. Will Ubisoft do the same with Watch Dogs? I doubt it.
We are just over a month away from June, the month in which the biggest gaming expo is organized. If Ubisoft wants to announced Watch Dogs 2, then there is no better place then E3!
