Watch Dogs Franchise to have a Ten Year Plan
Ubisoft Montreal plan to support Watch Dogs for a while
The Guardian recently had an interview with Ubisoft Montreal on the development and gameplay mechanics of Watch Dogs. One interesting detail about Watch Dogs from the interview happens to be that Ubisoft Montreal plans to keep Watch Dogs for a long time, or more specifically similar to how Bungie is planning to have a 10-year plan with Destiny.
Here is a quote from the Dominic Guay from the interview regarding Watch Dogs life-span.
“Honestly that’s what we’re doing too. Here’s the way we think about it: even if we change our minds mid-course or after shipping Watch Dogs and say ‘scratch that, we’ll do something else’, the planning helps to make a strong core. We’ve all seen TV series where after a season there are a lot of mysteries; then at the start of season two you think, they didn’t know what was going to happen – they’re just stringing us along! You feel it! And it’s the same with games.
If there’s a clear long-term plan, you’ll have stronger characters, the universe will be more coherent. So when you have the luxury of creating a new brand – which is happening less and less in this industry, you need to do just that. We’ve been doing the same thing Bungie has been doing – we’re trying to see how our characters and world will evolve. That’s always in the back of our heads.”
This is a unexpected, strange and kind of exciting at the same time. What can Ubisoft Montreal possibly do within 10 years for Watch Dogs? Let us know in the comments below on what you think about this.
