Watch Dogs 2 to be released by April 2017

For a game that built up as much pre-launch hype as Watch Dogs, it’s super weird that Ubisoft hasn’t made a bigger deal of the inevitable sequel. We know it’s coming though, and we now know it’ll be coming sometime b...   read

This Grand Theft Auto V mod adds in Watch_Dogs' hacking

I really liked Watch_Dogs. Sure the graphics weren’t what we were shown at first, Aiden Pearce was an unlikable dick, and it wasn’t the most optimised thing in the world, but I still had a lot of fun hacking an entire city. If ...   read

Watch Dogs changed Ubisoft's approach to showing pre-release games

The Watch Dogs Ubisoft debuted at E3 2012 was different than the Watch Dogs Ubisoft released in 2014. The game had the same dystopian premise, but it just didn't look as impressive. Everything that had people excited for a wonderfully detai...   read

Watch Dogs 2 is real according to a Ubisoft employee

Watch Dogs 2 is deep into development. Well, either that or someone was lying to potential employers about being the game's senior gameplay programmer. Julien Risse, who works for Ubisoft in Paris, had Watch Dogs 2 listed on his LinkedIn pr...   read

How did Destructoid's most anticipated games of 2014 come out?

Want to feel old? January 2014 was just about one year ago. That's one whole season of a TV show or a complete Earth's orbit around the sun. Way back then--I can hardly remember it in the shadow of the god awful year--the Destructoid staff ...   read

Watch Dogs: Bad Blood goes punk, features co-op play and new modes

Say what you will about Ubisoft, but they've got a knack for trying something a little different for their DLC offerings. After the incredibly successful launch of Watch Dogs back in May, it seemed like they've been biding their time with t...   read

Watch Dogs will be Ubisoft's final M-rated Wii U game

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has spoken with Game Informer about what Wii U owners can expect to see from the company, and it's going to be more family-oriented games. Those sell well enough with that audience, while, unsurprisingly, "What we...   read

Watch Dogs is better with Team Fortress 2 characters

STBlackST did a terrific job with this Team Fortress 2 short, Hat_Dogs. It's a riff on Watch Dogs' "hack everything" mentality using characters we actually like. Impressive, and -- with the inclusion of that bread line -- timely.   read
