We’re still a few days away from the first E3 2016 press conferences, but Ubisoft decided to get a head start with a world premiere live stream for Watch Dogs 2 on Wednesday. Thanks to a leaked advertisement, we already know that the open world sequel will take place in San Francisco and will launch this November, but there’s still plenty for Ubisoft to reveal on the stream today.
Two years ago, we asked the following question: Does Watch Dogs live up to the massive hype? Our answer was a resounding “no.” One of the main reasons that Watch Dogs received so much scrutiny was because Ubisoft foolishly over-promised and under-delivered when it came to the game’s visuals.
When we saw our first glimpse of Watch Dogs at E3 2012, the game looked like nothing we’d ever seen before. By the time it actually launched on consoles and PC in 2014, Ubisoft had scaled down the graphics dramatically. Gamers were furious, and I can’t imagine Ubisoft is going to make the same mistake twice.
Of course, Watch Dogs 2 isn’t the only game that Ubisoft will be featuring at E3 2016. For Honor, South Park: The Fractured but Whole and Ghost Recon Wildlands will all make appearances at the press conference on June 13th.
But for now, you can watch the Watch Dogs 2 live stream below at 12PM ET:
