Watch Dogs 3 London setting confirmed


Ubisoft, we feel your pain. You kept things quiet for so long and had we not heard the recent news you’d of made it to E3 2019 without revealing the name of a rumoured Watch Dogs 3 London setting. Unfortunately, thanks to Amazon that name has now been blown out of the water and revealed to the public.

It was less than 24 hours ago that a new game emerged on the UK website for Amazon, and not only was the plot detail there in plain site but also revealed the name of a game known as Watch Dogs Legion – the successor to Watch Dogs 2. A Watch Dogs 3 London had been rumoured for quite some time now, with the Amazon Listing stating the game is “a post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London’s fortunes” and “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”, in other words we’ll be able to “play as anyone.”

Kotaku among other concrete sources have now confirmed the details of a Watch Dogs 3 London setting, and the game being called Watch Dogs Legion. Kotaku have also communicated that making the NPCs playable has been the holdup that Watch Dogs 3 has taken so long to overcome. Meanwhile VG247 have reported that Far Cry 2’s Creative Director Clint Hocking is going to be the man on the stage for this tech-heavy instalment of Watch Dogs.

With the fact that this Watch Dogs 3 London leak was unintentional, the Amazon listing has now been taken offline – although it’s pretty much a definite the game will be teased at E3 2019. As per reports from Gamesradar this wasn’t the first leak of a Watch Dogs 3 London setting, and that Legion was in fact rumoured to be the project name for next years Assassin’s Creed instalment.

With this new Watch Dogs 3 London information it doesn’t sound much like Legion is going in an Assassin’s Creed direction, but one thing is for sure – we’ll almost certainly hear more details during Ubisoft’s E3 2019 press conference.

I've been a gamer ever since I was old enough to hold a controller, early 90's to be exact. My first console was a NES, with my favourite games ranging from Super Mario to Duck Hunt. Fast forward almost 30 years and I'm now a PS4, PC and Switch player. My ideal genres are RPG and RTS titles, so Assassin's Creed, Kingdom Hearts, Viv 6 and Two Point Hospital are included in my mix.

Have your say!
