New, 59 comments

A sequel to Ubisoft's open-world action-adventure game Watch Dogs is reportedly in development, according to a listing on the the LinkedIn profile of a Ubisoft senior gameplay programmer.

Julien Risse, who works at Ubisoft in Paris, has since removed Watch Dogs 2 from LinkedIn. We've reached out to Ubisoft for more information and will update accordingly. A cached version of the listing still remains.

Lionel Raynaud, vice president of creative at Ubisoft Montreal, has spoken previously about the flaws of the first game and a sequel, though an official announcement has not been made. At the time, he said Ubisoft hopes to build better technology that will ultimately allow players more freedom.

"This is quite a high ambition and will require us to develop technologies that we didn't have for Watch Dogs, but this combined with fixing and refining what worked well is probably the way to go for Watch Dogs 2," Raynaud said at the time.
