With the release of Watchdogs 2, footage has started to appear online, one of which appears to contain an Easter egg referencing a possible new Ubisoft game. According to Kotaku, the game has a mission which sees the main character stealing a trailer for an unannounced Ubisoft game from Ubisoft’s San Francisco office, which appears in the game.
The game appears to be a space based game as you can see in the video below.
Kotaku have also reported that the mission begins with with the player intercepting a call from a (fictional) Ubisoft marketing person. They discuss how Assassins Creed games and how they have a tendency to be leaked before release before having a conversation about how the new game will “never get out.” The player then intercepts a video meant for (in game) E3 which has ‘Ubisoft confidential, do not distribute’ across the centre.
Watchdogs 2 hit stores today for Xbox One and PS4 and will be coming to PC on November 29th.
Do you think this could be a real title or just an interesting in game mission? Either way, it’s a very clever way to get people talking about Watchdogs 2 ahead of release! Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
