Watch Dogs 2 reveal set for June 8, teaser video
Ubisoft has released a 32-second teaser video for Watch Dogs 2 dubbed “Hello World,” confirming a June 8 reveal.
The character featured in the trailer, who is performing technological wizardry on his smartphone, seems to match the leaked protagonist from back in May.
Come June 8th, the world premiere of ‘Watch Dogs 2’ will show a return to the openworld hacker. Unlike the first one, this game will target current gen consoles and PC only. Expect a deeper reveal at E3, but the release won’t be for a while. (Like late 2017.)
Check out the Teaser:
“Watch Dogs 2 has been a known quantity for some time. It was assumed that a sequel was on the cards as soon as the original proved such a hit in 2014, then a Kotaku report claimed that the game would fill the Assassin’s Creed-shaped hole in Ubisoft’s current release schedule.
In February the game was confirmed in an investor call for release before April 2017.
Ubisoft has mentioned the game multiple times before, but this is the first time any official look at it has been seen. The character’s clothing in the trailer (embedded below) also appears to confirm that the game’s lead character will bethis one , leaked in an Instagram post by actor Cort King.
Reports have suggested that the game will be set in San Francisco, replacing the original game’s Chicago setting. In the game, players are able to manipulate the world around them through their phone – which hacks a central city-wide operating system that can manipulate traffic lights, automatic bollards, bridges and other facets of city infrastructure.”
