Senior gameplay programmer Julien Risse may have accidentally leaked the sequel.
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.
