Watch Dogs 2 release date outed in ad faux pas

The setting will be in San Francisco.


You gotta love it when ad timing ruins an announcement. Unless of course, a hacker caused the leak.

That could be a plausible explanation for a Watch Dogs 2 ad on IGN (via AllGamesDelta) showing the release date for the urban hacker game as November 15. The image in the ad also shows the Golden Gate Bridge, which confirms that the game will be set in San Francisco.

We already knew that Ubisoft was planning to show the game next week at E3, and that the game would have a "new tone" and main character. All we need now is a leaked trailer. Either way, we'll be covering the Ubisoft press conference on Monday, so stay tuned.

      I am REALLY hoping for a Assassin's Creed like arc for Watch Dogs. New setting and protagonist could help but the game itself needs a bit more fun to it. The first game was mediocre at best but the concept and ideas around it are pretty neat so I want to have hope for this. I'll withhold judgement until we see more at E3.

        Assassin's Creed arc as in AC1 was cool but ultimately not a great game in the long run, like others have said a good tech demo/proof of concept. Then we got AC2 and it was awesome.

        Not in the sense that I want Watch Dogs annualized and we get like AC/WD swapping on and off every other year haha.
