Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs may not have been the greatest game in the history of all things great but it was a roaring success, especially considering its status as a new IP. Though the publisher has talked about plans for building a franchise around Watch Dogs, an employee’s slip-up may be the first sign that Watch Dogs 2 is actually in development.

As reported by Videogamer, senior gameplay programmer Julien Risse listed Watch Dogs 2 as one of the current projects he’s working on via his LinkedIn profile. Risse began working from December 2013 and Watch Dogs came out in May 2014, which is interesting when you consider that the first game was supposed to originally release in November 2013.


This doesn’t necessarily mean that Ubisoft will reveal Watch Dogs 2 at E3 2015, though given its track record with the first game it’s not unreasonable to expect a teaser of sorts. Stay tuned for more information and let us know what you think about a sequel to Watch Dogs in, say, the next two years.

    Easily the biggest disappointment in years. Massive potential and just all around underwhelming. Art design, AI routines, hacking all of it mundane and average at best and way less than was promised.

    Ubi soft will not get my money on day 1 with watch dogs 2. I will need to play it first because the hype train often loses control and goes off the rails.

      Yep I’m with you on that one.
      Was a huge disappointment- left a bad taste in my mouth.
      Then after the debacle of Unity – I decided no more UBISOFT games at launch for me.

      Yea thats probably the safe bet. Its crazy cause we could see the slide in quality from all their studios over the past couple years but we didn’t know when it would pass that point of where the quality is so low its no longer worth the investment.

      At this point if they were to announce blood dragon 2 I’d be skeptical of its quality and quite honestly the first blood dragon was their best game in years! It was so obvious the dev team had some passion for it, their love of the project is obvious. Its not another corporate cookie cutter project that bores them to tears. We need to get back to the point where games are only made because teams are passionate about making them because they have solid ideas. No more franchise churn for the sake of money. Original quality content will bring more long term money than what we see today because they are started to make us hate them and we will abandon their games.
