Watch Dogs 2 Easter Egg Might Be Teasing New Ubisoft Game

by Joe Juba on Nov 14, 2016 at 08:34 AM

Ubisoft has had a rough history with its games leaking – especially in the Assassin's Creed series. Watch Dogs 2 seems to poke fun at this, giving players a mission to hack into Ubisoft's San Francisco office and get an early peek at what the developer is working on. 

In the video from Kotaku below, players hop on the roof of the building and take control of cameras to spy on the goings-on in the studio. At one point (at the 2:20 mark), you can even see a trailer for an apparently unannounced Ubisoft game.

Is this an actual new space game with a Western theme? Or is it just a decoy created as a joke? Who knows? But it's nice to see Ubisoft having a little fun with it.

Our Take
Companies are coming up with increasingly inventive ways to tease upcoming projects, so it wouldn't be completely crazy to assume the "leaked" game here is real. On the other hand, the studio may just be trying to throw people off the trail. Maybe there's nothing more to say either way; it might just be a neat Easter egg in Watch Dogs 2 and nothing more. Only time will tell.
