Watch Dogs 3 Potential Location Revealed
A third entry in the Watch Dogs series has been all but confirmed through various inadvertent hints, but Ubisoft has still yet to offer anything concrete regarding the future of the hacking-centric series. Following the reveal of a rumored new Assassin’s Creed game, it appears we may have just received the first details about Watch Dogs 3, including where it might take place.
By way of a recent 4Chan post, it looks like Watch Dogs 3 may be taking place in jolly ol’ London, moving away from the series’ previous setting of San Francisco. The new adventure is also premised to have greater emphasis on “smaller firearms and knives for combat” as well as a significant focus on hacking. Other changes we’re said to expect is the advent of optional male and female characters, keeping in line with other recent Ubisoft titles such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Far Cry 5.
As Assassin’s Creed is already expected to sit out 2019, the post concludes that this is to make way for Watch Dogs 3, the game shooting for a 2019 release. This could very likely be the case as several leaks have been suggesting as much over the last few months. Recently, Ubisoft was revealed to have several AAA titles waiting in the wings for 2019, the long-rumored Watch Dogs 3 easily able to fit into that timeframe. However, as none of these details have been officially confirmed, it’s probably best to keep a few grains of salt on-hand for the time being.
