Flash back to 2012 when Watch Dogs was one of the best games shown at E3. Everyone was excited for Ubisoft‘s cyber security sandbox to launch alongside the PS4 and Xbox One – the graphics and the gameplay that we’d been promised in trailers looked phenomenal. Unfortunately, the game was delayed until the beginning of 2014 and when it finally arrived, many players were underwhelmed.
But despite Watch Dogs not being “perfect in any way”, according to the game’s creative director Jonathan Morin, it still sold 4 million copies in its first week, becoming the best-selling new IP ever. It was also the best week 1 sales performance that Ubisoft had ever seen too.
It’s a no brainer then that Watch Dogs 2 is on the way, but thanks to a leak from a Ubisoft gameplay programmer, we now have even more confirmation.
