After weeks of rumors and speculation, Ubisoft confirmed during E3 2019 that Watch_Dogs: Legion is in the works.
Watch_Dogs: Legion will be the third game in the iconic techno thriller and will be a major departure from previous titles. The game will be set in a post-Brexit London in which the economy and government has collapsed. In its place, an authoritarian regime has taken power while using a ruthless PMC and ctOS to clampdown on dissent. In response, the UK branch of DeadSec has formed a resistance army to liberate the country.
Two of the biggest changes seen at E3 is the game allowing players to take on the role of many characters along with the new cyber-punk setting. Players could recruit NPC’s to join their army, train them then take on the role of that character if needed. The world players are in has also drastically changed as the game will now be set in a cyber-punk dystopia.
Watch_Dogs: Legion is set to be released on March 6, 2020 for all major consoles and the PC. More information about the game will be made available in the future.
