Watch Dogs 3 Called Watch Dogs Legion, Set in London

The pre-E3 rumors/potential leaks continue to trickle out and the latest points to the potential unveiling of Ubisoft’s latest in their open-world, action-adventure series Watch Dogs (or Watch_Dogs if one is to keep with the style/aesthetic). Referred to as Watch Dogs Legion — and picked up on Amazon by a few select outlets before the page was, understandably, taken down — the third instalment in the series appears to be moving away from its previous setting of America (the 2014 original and 2016 follow-up based in Chicago and San Francisco respectively), instead taking place this time in the UK capital, London.

As the game’s blurb describes: “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.” What’s more interesting however is one of the game’s new additions so far as gameplay goes, in the fact that players can “play as anyone”. What this means for the game’s story (and its move away from a main/central protagonist) not to mention what this bold claim even entails mechanically — and how players can, potentially, tailor/alter/customise the characters they control — is unknown. Naturally, if this rumor turns out to be true, we’re sure to see and hear plenty from Ubisoft when their own E3 showcase kicks off next week, June 1PM PT.
