Ubisoft has yet to formally announce Watch Dogs 2, the sequel to 2014’s hack happy open world videogame – but it looks like that announcement could be on the horizon.
The publisher apparently sent a gift containing Watch Dogs 2 Ray Bans to YouTuber The Rad Brad, (he boasts more than 6 million subscribers, so he’s kind of a big deal).
Old Rads posted a picture on Twitter of the case, along with what looks like the logo for Watch Dogs 2.

Watch Dogs 2 is a game that we all know is coming. It was all but confirmed by Ubisoft in an earnings call a while back, and the publisher have openly discussed their plans for the game,
Hell, we even know that the game will probably be coming before April 2017 – but we’re still waiting on a proper confirmation. Videogames are weird like that.
If I were a betting man, I’d say that they probably have an announcement planned for E3. I think that’s usually where developers and publishers share all their big news, but don’t quote me on that.
Ubisoft’s company showcase is scheduled for Monday, June 13 at 1pm PST (that’s 9pm in the UK). Considering the first Watch Dogs shifted over 9 million copies, a sequel is hardly shocking news.
One thing’s for sure, if The Rad Brad really did just out a massive Ubisoft announcement weeks early, they’re probably gonna want those shades back.
