Russ Frushtick is the director of special projects, and he has been covering the world of video games and technology for over 15 years. He co-founded Polygon in 2012.

Watch Dogs creative director says its built on current-gen hardware, but doesn't rule out the possibility of next-gen.

There's been a lot of speculation about whether Ubisoft Montreal's recently revealed Watch Dogs is actually a next-gen game, due to the near-impossible prettiness of its E3 reveal demo.

We talked with creative director Jonathan Morin about the game's platform destination, and he emphatically insisted that it's built on current-gen hardware. The demo seen during Ubisoft's press conference was apparently running on a high-end PC, and the game's official product page says it's also for Xbox 360 and PS3 — though Morin intimated that he's not discounting the possibility of pushing the game to heretofore unreleased gaming systems.

"We're a multiple platform game, but as we grow and push the contents to its limits, if there's other opportunities that show up, and it improves the experience, then we'll surely listen very carefully," Morin said.

Check out our full video interview with Morin below to hear more about the game's impressive visuals, as well as the inspiration for Watch Dog's smartphone superpowers.
