Ubisoft Rumors and Updates: two games leaked in Watch Dogs 2
Watchdogs 2 is a sequel to Watchdogs that was released with ambitions to innovate open world gameplay. It provides the players hacking capabilities to change the way they play the game. However, these goals were barely met as gamers were disappointed with how lifeless and bland the final game turned out. Ubisoft tried to remedy this by changing its approach on Watchdogs 2 bringing in a sense of humor with a much colorful palette. In fact, they may have taken their sense of humor too much because there were using it to make fun of themselves, specifically about their games leaking to the press way before it was released.
With video game leaks happening everywhere, Ubisoft is no stranger to them as its last two Assassin's Creed (Unity and Syndicate) games were leaked almost a year before they were released. But with Watchdogs 2, the company might have leaked two games themselves to beat the press to the punch giving clues as to what games they may release in the future.
In Watchdogs 2, some side missions can be initiated by hacking the phones of people. One specific side mission begins when you hack an Ubisoft employee named Elliot Chen who is talking to his boss at Ubisoft. Chen tells his boss not to worry that there is "no way" for the trailer of their new game to be leaked. His boss replies with: "Can you? Can you assure me? After what happened with Unity, Syndicate, Osiris?"
Osiris may be the title of the next Assassin's Creed game. According to some reports, Osiris will be set on ancient Egypt and will act as an origin story that will set in motion the events of Assassin's Creed.
Another clue can be found once you break in the Ubisoft headquarters in San Francisco and hack into the server containing a watermarked trailer. The trailer contains scenes of a space station and a spacecraft in orbit of a planet.
A NeoGAF user named TheHollowNight who was an Ubisoft employee in the past, claims that the game has been in development for the past few yaers. In his comments, he was surprised that this game was being teased. He said that when he left Ubisoft two years ago, he knew very little of the game but was assured that the game is real since he's heard a lot of talks about it during his time with the company.
Of course, none of this is definite proof of the two games that were teased. It may be that Ubisoft may be fooling us into thinking that the games are real just to poke fun at us. We just have to stay tuned for any updates on Ubisoft.
