Watch Dogs 2 Details Leaked

After a couple of teases for Watch Dogs 2 – including a trailer and PR packs being sent to select YouTubers, Ubisoft’s sequel to their (somewhat disappointing) 2014 release has hit a couple of leaks. Originally planned for a full reveal on the 8th June, a small advertising gaff seems to have spilled the beans ahead of the planned date.

Over on the IGN, a banner ad had accidentally been prematurely posted and gave us a brief look at Watch Dogs 2’s new main protagonist. Also spotted in the image were indications that the fictional hacker group DedSec will once again be involved in the game’s story and that this will all take place in San Francisco, as shown by the inclusion of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Perhaps the biggest leak of all is the game’s release date, revealed at the 15th November this year – which leaves me to wonder if Watch Dogs could become biyearly tradition and trade spots with the ever stale growing Assassin’s Creed series?

Watch Dogs 2 Banner Leak

I must admit that it’s rather refreshing to see a release date set this year after the game’s previous title suffered over-hype and fatigue from being shown at multiple shows over a two year period. Hopefully we’ll see a much better improved title in this iteration, as 2014’s first title suffered from multiple bugs, a storyline that become stale with progression and bland gameplay… well, except for the spider-tank parts anyway.

With the banner now removed, I’m sure that we’ll get more details at E3 and if the release date is so close, it’s a safe bet to assume the game will be playable on the show floor.
