Watch Dogs 3 Will Be Set in London, Says New Report

Watch Dogs 3

Fans have long speculated about the setting of Watch Dogs 3, but a new report from Kotaku appears to finally confirm that the game is heading to London.

Ubisoft has hinted at this news for a while; along with new items and general bug fixes, a patch for Watch Dogs 2 back in 2017 altered the game’s ending to include references to the location—an unusual change for any title.

Although Watch Dogs 3 has yet to be officially confirmed by Ubisoft, Kotaku’s wording suggests that the site has access to developmental sources. In reference to the aforementioned patch, the site writes, “A new patch for Watch Dogs 2 also dropped a major clue for Watch Dogs 3, telling the world that it would be set in London (which it is).”

Considering the franchise shares a universe with Assassin’s Creed, which has also visited London in the Victorian era, seeing how things have changed in the present day and what changes to the Watch Dogs formula are necessary to accommodate for the new location will be interesting.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

 on

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
