This week is always a weird one: it’s the week before E3, and all the hard work of publishers and developers – all that money spent on marketing campaigns and reveals – is being undone by internet forum users that know too much.
The latest victim: Ubisoft. Granted, Watch Dogs 3 is the worst kept secret in gaming right now, and this week we’ve had another megaton leak about what the game will offer.
This newest leak, which comes via an Amazon listing, confirms previous rumours that have been circulating that suggest the game will be set in London and will take place in a post-Brexit world.
The link is officially from a Ubisoft account, too, meaning there is very little chance of this being a fake or a hoax. We’re sure the reveal is still going to be special though, Ubi – don’t lose faith!
According to the listing, this game will be called Watch Dogs Legion – perhaps because of the ability you’ll have to play as any character in the game.
“Watch_Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London, the listing states.
“It’s a post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes. London is one of the most iconic cities in the world and has had a massive influence on all of Western Culture for centuries… London makes total sense for WD, as the city has one of the highest surveillance levels in the world making this the perfect playground.”
“Play as anyone, Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems.”
We’re imagining this will see a proper story and gameplay reveal at Ubisoft’s E3 conference later this month.
Ubisoft’s press conference will kick off June 10 at 9am BST (or that’s 1pm PT, 4pm ET, 10pm CEST if you’re not in the UK).
And of course, we’ll keep you updated as soon as anything else is leaked or revealed.
