Rumor: First look at Watch Dogs 2’s new protagonist

We already know that Watch Dogs 2 is set to launch later this year Ubisoft are taking a break with their relentless annualization of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and instead pushing the sequel to their 2014 hit Watch Dogs instead.

Thanks to the Instagram account of a motion capture actor, we may just have received our very first look (in a manner of speaking) of the Watch Dogs 2 protagonist, the actor, going by the name TheKingCort on Instagram, posted the image that you can see below with the following caption: “Had a blast doing motion capture work as the lead character in a new video game series! (= #actor #motioncapture #artist #videogames #ps4 #xbox #art #work #comingsoon #WatchDogs2”

Which, you know, is fairly substantial evidence right there that, you know, this is in fact related to Watch Dogs 2.

Watch Dogs 2 will probably be announced at E3 this year.

Take a look at the screenshot:

“When it was released last year, Watch Dogs was greeted with a mixed reception from the critics. It wasn’t just that it had been hyped to the rafters for roughly two years ahead of its release and it had been pared back visually before it hit retail racks; critics gouged it out for offering little in the way of open-world innovation, a rather pedestrian storyline and the fact that it stuck rather slavishly to Ubisoft’s cross-game rubric.”
