Ubisoft confirms Watch Dogs Legion

“God save the NPCs,” says official tease ahead of E3 reveal

Ubisoft has confirmed plans to unveil Watch Dogs Legion at E3, after the game leaked earlier this week.

A Twitter update from the publisher states the title will officially be revealed at the show, with Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference taking place on Monday June 10.

“God Save the NPCs,” the publisher wrote, likely in reference to the game’s reported London setting and a mechanic allowing players to control any individual they meet in the game.

The game was outed earlier this week via a since-deleted Amazon product listing, which read: “Watch_Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London. It’s a post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes.

“London is one of the most iconic cities in the world and has had a massive influence on all of Western Culture for centuries… London makes total sense for WD, as the city has one of the highest surveillance levels in the world making this the perfect playground.”

Watch Dogs 3’s London setting was hinted at in a post-release Watch Dogs 2 patch, which expanded the game’s ending and included references to the Brixton area of the city.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot recently confirmed the publisher has three ‘triple-A’ titles still to be announced for this fiscal year, ending March 31, 2020.
