Ubisoft confirmed yesterday that Watch Dogs 2 will be officially presented during its E3 2016 conference, which takes place on June 13 at 17h (GMT).
According to speculation in recent days, there are now a certainty: The open-world action game Watch Dogs 2 will definitely be seen at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles. The company also confirmed a few other titles that are going to show up at the event, such as For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, South Park The Fractured But Whole and Eagle Flight.
This has now been confirmed in an official press release by the competent publisher. However, the company remained quiet about more details on the game, so still nothing about story and gameplay of Watch Dogs 2 is known so far.
The new game in the franchise may has a “different tone”, according to the CEO of Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot. Surely we can see what it really means in the company’s presentation.
No release date has been announced for Watch Dogs 2, but it is likely to be released before April 2017.
We will also see more of For Honor – a game where Samurais, Vikings and Knights meet for battle – as Ubisoft unveiled at last year’s fair. The shooter Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is also back from E3 2015 with a co-op gameplay in an open world.
In addition, we can expect more coarse of jokes from Matt Stone and Trey Parker, who will share more of South Park: The Fractured But Whole – sequel to RPG success of South Park: The Stick of Truth in 2014. Virtual reality is of course also on the program, with Eagle Flight, which allows players to experience the feeling of being an eagle that soars high above Paris.
