Watch Dogs 2 is definitely a real thing, and Ubisoft is proving that with the first ever video tease.
Watch it below.
Ok so there isn't a whole lot going on here but we do get to find out that the full game will be revealed on the 8th of January. That hand also suggests that we're going to be dealing with a different protagonist this time around, which is in keeping with the early leaks.
It also seems that more leaks are in order (which is pretty fitting given the nature of the game) as this banner was displayed early on IGN. The release date of November 15th would be in line with a replacement for the Assassin's Creed series in 2016, which Ubisoft has previously confirmed to be taking a break until 2017.
It's worth mentioning Assassin's Creed here as it is a major franchise which was spawned from a pretty dull first entry. Watch Dogs 1 had a huge amount of hype ahead of release, which made the final game a bit of a disappointment, especially in terms of the boring main character and the lack of much to do.
Let's hope Ubisoft has plans to add a lot more for the sequel, giving us the equivalent of the superior Assassin's Creed 2 and really kicking this series into high gear.
Expect the official reveal of Watch Dogs 2 on the 8th of June, 2016.
