This has been rumoured for some time, of course—we said as much when Ubisoft confirmed details of its upcoming E3 conference—plus we know a patch that revised the ending of Watch Dogs 2 included references to Brixton, a location in the UK capital. Kotaku is now reporting the rumour as true.
I don’t know what’s more surprising: the setting for the game or that it’s getting made at all.
This is the first I had heard of a third game and assumed—given how disappointed I understood Ubisoft to be with the sales of Watch Dogs 2—we wouldn’t see one.
That said, I enjoyed the second game and its take on Silicon Valley. Assuming the game is actually set in the UK, I hope the team is able to replicate that same experience for players once again.
