Watch Dogs 3 Release Date News: Ubisoft rumours, Ending teasers, new game London setting
Watch Dogs 3 – Another Sam AI Teaser?
We could have had another little tease about Watch Dogs 3, thanks to Ubisoft’s ‘AI’ assistant Sam.
The assistant can be used to gather data about your behaviour or stats in Ubisoft games, but previously we’ve seen people using the device to try and tease more information about upcoming Ubisoft games out of the company.
Well, this time, it may have worked. Reddit user Cakebytheocean02 noted that they said ‘tell me about Watch Dogs 3’ to Sam, and it replied:
“You’d think that I’d know what was brewing in the Watch Dogs universe with my DedSec contacts, but I haven’t heard a blip from them about a sequel. I’ll let you know if I get new info on this.”
The Redditor replied: “If you don’t know it, then who will?”
Sam: “They will come. Or “he”. There’s a debate about that. But who cares.”
A good tease, maybe we can look forward to more news in the new year. For now, read on for everything we know so far.
Ubisoft was widely expected to reveal or at the very least, hint, at the release of a brand new Watch Dogs adventure at E3 2018.
However, the conference came and went with no such announcement for the popular Ubi series, which gained a new lease of life with the games excellent second entry.
There was plenty of good reasons to believe something was on the horizon, not least because Watch Dogs 2 ended with a little tease that hinted at the existence of more breakout hacker groups around the world.
One special ending (attained after completing the game with the bonus DLC also completed) suggested that the future of the Watch Dogs universe would take us to London – somewhere around Shoreditch, Camden or Hackney, most likely.
As we say though, no such Watch Dogs announcement was made.
So, whats the deal with the future of Watch Dogs 3? When will we likely hear more about the game? And what do we know about the potential third game in the series so far?
All this and more, can be found below!

Watch Dogs 3 – What is it?
It seems as if Ubisoft is slowly but surely releasing information suggesting a Watch Dogs 3 announcement is coming in the not too distant future.
The gist of it is this: Ubisoft’s April Fools joke for 2018 was a Watch Dogs-related prank that asked users to hack into its own Uplay service, reminding players that Ubi hasn’t forgotten about the franchise.
Later, Ubisoft itself tweeted what could have been a tagline from the game in a tweet – “This is everything” – which was promptly deleted.
Another more recent teaser for the game involved Sam, the Ubisoft mobile-app AI assistant.
But when asked about the upcoming sequel in a UbiCentral video, the AI responded by saying: “Watch Dogs 3 is not finished yet, but from the last early build I tried it’s very solid.”
It’s pretty much confirmed at this point that Ubisoft will be making a Watch Dogs 3, then.
We just don’t know anything concrete about what form it will take for the time being.
Watch Dogs is certainly a big IP for Ubisoft and we can’t imagine that any formal announcement will be made out of the blue.
It’s even less likely to happen in 2018 with so many other sizeable Ubisoft games taking centre stage over the next few months.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is out later this year, The Division 2 is coming March 2019 and there are several other Ubisoft games of increased importance for Ubisoft.
From Starlink to Beyond Good & Evil 2. Ubisoft has got a pretty full plate at the moment.
So realistically, when will we hear more about the game? Well, we could be fed a few teasers now and again. You might even see some leaks from time to time. Developers Linkedin profiles and such.
But, if we’re being honest, it could be April 2019 before we hear anything official from the team, with a proper E3 2019 deep dive seeming the most likely scernario, in much the same way as what Ubisoft did with their other major IP’s at E3 2018.
If you’re craving that next hit of hackable Watch Dogs action, you could be waiting some time.
