Watch Dogs was a new Ubisoft IP that arrived last year, it’s an open-world adventure and action game that’s set in Chicago. The title did quite well when it arrived and since then there has been talk of a sequel particularly after it became evident that there will be no further DLC expansions. While Ubisoft is yet to formally confirm Watch Dogs 2 the title was listed briefly on a Ubisoft employee’s LinkedIn account leading to speculation about whether or not its in the pipeline.
There have been hints at a potential sequel but Ubisoft has never outright confirmed if and when Watch Dogs 2 will be made public. Even after this snafu the developer has not yet released a statement to clear things up. The reference to Watch Dogs 2 has since been removed from Risse’s profile.
Rumors have already been circulating about Watch Dogs 2 and some believe that the next title might actually be set in a city outside the United States, though once again there has been no official confirmation and it’s just pure speculation.
Fans of the first title will certainly be excited at the prospect of a sequel, perhaps we might hear something about it later this year.
