Although none could be deciphered, it started the ball rolling with Watch Dog 3 rumors.
As reported by TheNerdMag, Ubisoft's official smartphone assistant app named Sam may have spilled the beans early on Watch Dogs 3 during a conversation with a customer recently. Of course, Watch Dogs is a series built around hacking, so an April Fool's day joke around this theme more foreshadowing than a simple joke.More news: Bear Forced To Do 'Sickening' Tricks at Soccer Match in Russian Federation
YouTube channel Ubicentral has posted a video asking SAM, Ubisoft's personal virtual assistant for beta in Canada, about a certain Watch_Dogs 3. As a reminder, some as-yet unreleased Ubisoft games planned for the future include The Crew 2, Far Cry 3: Classic Edition, Skull & Bones and StarLink: Battle for Atlas. "Watch Dogs 3 is not finished yet, but from the last early build I tried it's very solid", the app said dutifully when asked about the state of the sequel. The development team is doing wonders! "Can't wait for you to try it!"
So is this an accidental reveal or are they really telling us something? Apparently the AI gaming buddy let slip info on Watch Dogs 3 when asked about a new Watch Dogs title, although this could be the random blather of a piece of technology gone wrong. Rumours and leaks are already starting to multiply. The Tweet got deleted afterward but put us in confusion because "Everything is connected" is a phrase usually used to market Watch Dogs. Holiday 2018 is a likely release date, if Ubisoft plans to alternate Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs releases.
