Leak: Watch Dogs 3 Legion shows up on Amazon UK (Confirmed by Kotaku) [Play as any recruit and other details listed]

Just thought you guys would want to be in the loop. The source is TheNerdMag. They did the MK11 reveal for Jan 2019.

According to an Amazon UK listing that belongs to Ubisoft, Watch Dogs Legion could be the third installment.

Game Plot:

Watch_Dogs Legion is set in a near-future, dystopian version of London. It's a post-Brexit world in which society, politics and technology have changed and altered London's fortunes. London is one of the most iconic cities in the world and has had a massive influence on all of Western Culture for centuries… London makes total sense for WD, as the city has one of the highest surveillance levels in the world making this the perfect playground.
Details about the game: (Sounds like Driver San Francisco, let's hope not)

Play as anyone, Every individual you meet in the open world, has a full set of animations, voice over, character traits and visuals that are generated & guided by gameplay systems
The listing looks legit. Let's not forget Walmart Canada leaked a lot of E3 2018 games and beyond as well. Perhaps its Amazon's turn?

Update: Kotaku confirms


Update 2:

Officially confirmed:


Hack my phone if repost or old.

Just make it more serious like Watch_Dogs and less high school cool like the sequel and I'm bought.

So Ubisoft finally understanding they cant make propelling characters since Ezio lets say fuck it and play random npc number 3082 since they can model them so much. Good on them , zero interest from me though

Give me an interesting protagonist, I don't want to play as "anyone." The setting sounds great but if you're just any rando off the street my excitement level is definitely taking a dive.

Ubisoft finally doesn’t internally leak a game, only for a retailer to do the job for them. Lol

Huh, I'm curious how they'll keep a coherent storyline with this premise. Sounds interesting, though.

How will Ubisoft try to spin this as non-political?
I mean if its like their last few Tom Clancy games...

They take some current hot button political themes and plaster them all over the marketing and then do fuck all with them in the game outside of some light "Both sides" bullshit.

Uh, sounds more like a spinoff than a sequel. Was hoping it wouldn't be a future city. Shall wait and see what it looks like.

Also the fact that you can control anyone means there's no character development.

I’m not quite sold on the play as anyone concept. Sure Aiden may have been grimdark as fuck but I thought WD2 was the step in the right direction.

Like on the surface I’m thinking this concept in WD3 may make the narrative feel like you’re playing a mission in a multiplayer game that has light story elements thrown in.

Not sure I trust a Watch Dogs game of all things to deal with Brexit in a way that's both intelligent and interesting, but we'll see.

thats a funny description of 2 because the first one is so stupidly dour i feel like it could only appeal to a high schooler trying megahard to put on adult airs. certainly feels like it was written by one

I mean, the Watch Dogs devs have never tried to pretend like their games don't make political statements. Quite the opposite actually:



Like, remember how Watch Dogs 2 literally debuted with a demo that featured the main character exposing this dude as he was in the process of having people delete destroy sensitive documents that we steal and release to the public?
