Rumor: Possible Identity of Watch Dogs 2 Protagonist Leaks Online

Evidence continues to mount that Watch Dogs 2 will feature a new protagonist in lieu of Aiden Pearce. 

That latest speculative tidbit to emerge relating to Ubisoft’s confirmed sequel arrives by way of Instagram, where a performance artist known as King posted a now-pulled image featuring a character sporting a baseball cap and a bandana covering his mouth. Standard attire for the Watch Dogs universe, it seems. 

Said post was tethered with the caption: “Had a blast doing motion capture work as the lead character in a new video game series! #actor #motioncapture #artist #videogames #ps4 #xbox #art #work #comingsoon #WatchDogs2” 

Rumored to shift the action from Chicago to San Francisco, the alleged protagonist of Watch Dogs 2 can be glimpsed below. 


Watch Dogs 2 is expected to drop sometime before April, 2017. But what do you think of today’s leak?
