Unlike what was rumored, not all upcoming games on the PS4 will need to support the PS4 Pro on a mandatory basis. This means there is always a question of whether or not an upcoming PS4 game will have a PS4 Pro mode. And while all of Sony’s own games definitely will support enhancements on the Pro going forward, with third parties, it’s a bit more hit and miss.

Take Watch Dogs 2, for example. It’s one of the biggest third party game releases of this year, but apparently, it might not support the PS4 Pro at launch. ‘Right now we’re focusing on November 15 with PS4 and Xbox and PC. As far as the other opportunities, we still have to look into those. We have nothing to announce on that right now. And I am sure plenty of other programmers are looking into these opportunities, but for us, for now, it’s PC, and Xbox One, and PS4,’ Jonathan Morin of Ubisoft told HipHopGamer in an interview.

Watch Dogs 2 was shown off running on the PS4 Pro at the PlayStation Meeting event where the Pro was unveiled, so we do know that PS4 Pro support is on the cards for the game- as of right now, it’s just unknown when that support will ultimately be patched into the game.

    Even though the first Watch Dogs was a huge disappointment that I never completed, the new one appears to cure a lot of the issues. Watch Dogs was a shallow game with a dull character and dull graphics. The fun factor was missing. The gameplay was boring and the environment was not a place where I wanted to be.

    But again I notice most of the Watch Dogs 2 footage so far is high end PC. Clearly the PS4 version will look rough in comparison. I won’t be pre-ordering the game and won’t be buying it until I see more of what the game looks like on PS4 Pro. This news will just delay any purchase prospect.

      Ubisoft has openly stated most of the footage of Watch Dogs 2 is run on PS4.,promised there will be no downgrades at release. Where on earth do you get your info from, stop listening to fake rumors.

    Well this will be the first game I have heard of that is october or forward not getting ps4 pro patch. I dont think these guys have there facts straight. It doesnt say anywhere that its not getting ps4 pro at launch…..

      Yes Sony documents have indicated that PS4 Pro support is compulsory for games released after October, but the loop hole is that it does not state when that support must be activated. Sony need to strictly enforce this by insisting all NEW games must be PS4 Pro enabled at launch, otherwise this will be abused.

      The game should be delayed until it complies, otherwise we are buying stuff without knowing exactly what we are actually going to receive. People do what they can get way with.

      The game is pretty much DONE, why punish existing PS4 owners and XBox One Owners by delaying the game for PS4 PRO patch? When the patch can be added much later in the year

    • Puppy

      Watch Dogs 2, is highly anticipated by most gamers it would be unfair to existing PS4 and XBox One owners to delay the game for PRO patch that can be added in weeks later.
