Ubisoft hasn’t said a word about Watch Dogs 3, but a recent tweet might just be the publisher’s first foray into teasing the hacktivist sequel.
A recent tweet from the official Watch Dogs Twitter account was posted and then quickly removed, but not before PlayStation Universe could grab a screenshot of the tweet:
“This is everything” is almost nothing; in fact, it definitely seems like something a hungover social media manager might accidentally post to their work account instead of their personal account. Not that I’m speaking from personal experience or anything…
Anyway, while this tweet is most likely an accidental tweet or a botched reply, it always could be a clue that Ubisoft is planning on ramping up hints about a Watch Dogs 3 announcement as we inch closer to E3 2018.
There have already been a few hints that Watch Dogs 3 is real, even if Ubisoft has remained relatively silent about it. First, an additional bit of dialogue that hinted at a London-based sequel was tagged onto Watch Dogs 2‘s ending post-release. Second, Watch Dogs 2 was meant to fill the void between Assassin’s Creed releases, and we’re expecting the same thing to happen with the follow-up to Assassin’s Creed Origins since it worked out pretty well for everyone. Third, Ubisoft confirmed that it has four AAA titles releasing in the 2018 fiscal year, which runs from April 1st, 2018, to March 31st, 2019, and we already know three of them—The Crew 2, Skull & Bones, and The Division 2. That pretty much just leaves Watch Dogs 3.
That being said, if Watch Dogs 3 is in the works, it could be the unannounced game that Ubisoft delayed into the 2019 fiscal year, so maybe it’s not coming out in 2018 after all. Ubisoft didn’t say that the unannounced title was one of its AAA offerings, but we still have a bad feeling that it might be a little while until we see Watch Dogs 3. Hopefully Ubisoft will give us something to get excited about at E3 2018.
