Ubisoft are hosting a special livestream event, inviting us to explore the future of Watch Dogs 2. It’s kind of nice to have an official reveal after days of leaks.
As we pretty much already knew thanks to an earlier leaked trailer and marketing materials, Watch Dogs 2 will be ditching the previous game’s Chicago setting in favour of San Fransico.
We’ll also have a brand new hacker protagonist this time around – take a look at the original game’s protagonist below and say your goodbyes.
Of course, it’s safe to assume that the big reveal (5pm UK time) will go into a fair bit more depth regarding the game’s features, story, and world. If we’re really lucky, we might even learn the name of our new hacker friend. At the moment I’m just calling him Hacky.
