Watch Dogs Legion will be the third entry in the Ubisoft open-world franchise built around hacker culture, according to a listing on Amazon U.K. The posting was first spotted by TheNerdMag.com. The product’s description says the game will be set in a “post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes.”
The listing states that players will be able to play as any character in the game’s open world. “Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems.”
The product description notes London “has one of the highest surveillce [sic] levels in the world making this the perfect playground.” Though there is no official count of security cameras in the U.K., the number has been estimated to be in the millions.
Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier confirms he’s heard about the game’s location and its features. “In fact,” he writes, “from what I’ve heard, this system is so ambitious that it’s been causing the developers a lot of headaches (and may have led to at least one delay).” On video game forum ResetEra, senior analyst at Niko Partners Daniel Ahmad also claims to have heard of the same title and description ahead of the leak.
We will likely learn more about Watch Dogs Legion next week at E3 2019. In the meantime, we’ve contacted Ubisoft for comment.
