It looks like Ubisoft is going ahead with a sequel to last year’s new IP, Watch Dogs, which was hyped to no end prior to release but ended up disappointing many after the fact thanks to downgraded graphics and repetitive gameplay.
While it is clear that the original game had some weaknesses, the story was fairly intriguing and one of the developers behind the game has said that the sequel will take more risks, while talking with GamesTM earlier this year.
Now thanks to an update to the LinkedIn profile of Julien Risse, who works over at Ubisoft Paris, we now know that Watch Dogs 2 is being worked on.
The original Watch Dogs launched at the end of May last year after a long delay from October 2013. The game was supposed to be one of the defining games of this new generation of consoles but unfortunately, Ubisoft chose to stick with its usual game formula, which carries across Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry.
Watch Dogs 2 has not been officially announced just yet but E3 is coming up soon so we may hear more then. The first Watch Dogs game was shown off as far back as 2012 so it wouldn’t be completely unusual for Ubisoft to show it off well before its potential release.

KitGuru Says: Ubisoft really needs to work on variety when it comes to its games because as it stands, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry all play very similarly. Hopefully Watch Dogs 2 will feature more risks, I actually enjoyed the game’s story myself although it got pretty repetitive.
