With speculation surrounding the Watch Dogs franchise and what Ubisoft plans on doing with it, it seems as if the studio might have accidentally shared news on a third entry in the franchise. According to YouTuber UbiCentral, it seems as if Ubisoft is slowly putting out information based around a potential Watch Dogs 3 announcement.
For those who don’t know, Ubisoft’s April Fools joke this year was related to the series, allowing players to hack into Uplay in the same vein as Watch Dogs. A couple of days later, the Watch Dogs Twitter also teased a possible tagline in a now deleted tweet. However, the most concrete evidence of a possible Watch Dogs 3 comes from Ubisoft’s gaming assistant A.I., Sam. When players ask Sam about Watch Dogs 3, the A.I. replies that while Watch Dogs 3 isn’t finished yet, the assistant can’t wait for players to try it.
Of course, players will have to take this information with a grain of salt, as it doesn’t necessarily mean much until Ubisoft announces a new game. However, the Watch Dogs series is still clearly a big part of Ubisoft’s future plans, so it’s more than likely that we’ll be seeing something eventually.

While I still think that the best from Watch Dogs is still to come, Watch Dogs 2 is a solid step up from its predecessor. Getting to be a hacker is phenomenal fun, but the game tends to stumble when it becomes a sub-par third-person shooter. If you’re willing to put up with a story that doesn’t always jive with the light-hearted feel of its characters, then you’ll experience one of the most interesting open-world games in years.
