He looks an awful lot like Aiden Pearce…
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. But we haven’t heard much more about the game beyond that it exists- true, there have been some rumors and leaks, but that’s about it, we haven’t really seen or heard much else that can be classified as even remotely substantial.
However, 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. Spotted by Nerd Leaks, 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. Let’s hope it is a far better game than the original managed to be in the end.
