Trademark filings from last year seemed to hint that Ubisoft could be considering making a Watch Dogs movie. If you were wondering if the speculation was right on the money, turns out that it is because during E3, both Ubisoft and Sony have confirmed that a Watch Dogs movie is indeed in the works.
It would seem that Ubisoft is particularly ambitious when it comes to movies because in addition to Watch Dogs, let’s not forget that later this year we can also look forward to the Assassin’s Creed movie. However apart from the confirmation that a movie is in the works, they did not share additional details about it.
This has us wondering about its plot, and whether it will be drawing inspiration from the first game or Watch Dogs 2, or if just like the Assassin’s Creed movie, it will be based on the universe in general with a storyline and plot unique to the movie. There was also no mention of when the film will be released, so right now a lot of it is pretty much up in the air.
Now there have been a lot of criticisms leveled at video game movies, but given the success of the Mr. Robot TV series which is built around a similar premise as Watch Dogs, we don’t see why a Watch Dogs movie wouldn’t be able to succeed, but what do you guys think?
