Watch Dogs may be commuting to New Jersey this fall

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Ubisoft's open-world action-hacking game Watch Dogs may be taking a trip to New Jersey this fall, based on information posted on the game's official Twitter account.

"The city of Camden, New Jersey had the highest crime rate in the US in 2012. A 24/7 surveillance program is now in effect," Ubisoft tweeted on its Watch Dogs Twitter account. Responding to a fan who asked if that was in reference to downloadable content for the game, @watchdogsgame responded that it's coming this fall.

In 2012, the FBI named Camden as the most violent city in the United States with a population of more than 50,000. It ranked first in homicides in 2011, based on its population of 77,000.

Watch Dogs was released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in May. A Wii U version is still in development. For more, read Polygon's Watch Dogs review.
