Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs 2 will be shown at E3 2016. Other games the publisher will be bringing include Ghost Recon Wildlands, For Honor and South Park: The Fractured But Whole and “some surprises.”
Ubisoft’s press conference for E3 takes place at 12:30pm PDT / 3:30pm EDT / 8:30pm BST / 9:30pm CEST / 7:30pm GMT/UTC on Monday, 13th June. Of course, Watch Dogs 2 could also appear at one of the platform holders press conferences so we may see it even sooner. The conference will be streamed live on Ubisoft.com.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot commented
E3 is always a very special moment when everyone in the entertainment business does their best to amaze and engage gamers. For Ubisoft’s teams, it’s a period of pride and of anxious anticipation because they are finally showing off the games they’ve poured so much passion into, and receiving feedback from players and peers. Our industry has evolved so much in the past 30 years, but what hasn’t changed is my love and respect for the limitless passion and talent of developers and players alike.
The video game industry continues to enjoy strong momentum, with powerful new platforms that enable more creativity, expression and imagination. More than ever, video games are showing how they will shape the future of entertainment. I can’t wait to be at E3 and see what the future has in store.
There is currently no release date or platforms for Watch Dogs 2 but we expect the lineup will include PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at least, perhaps even Nintendo NX. Release date wise, we expect to see it during the busy holiday period this year.
