During Ubisoft’s conference call for investors and analysts related to the fiscal year ended on March 31st, 2016, CEO Yves Guillemot gave a bit of information on the new Watch_Dogs, slated for release this fiscal year:
Our biggest title will be Watch_Dogs, which will build on the success of the first game. It has been one of Ubisoft’s best selling games of all times. The game will once again surprise players with a new tone and innovative hacking gameplay possibilities.
Later in the presentation, CFO Alain Martinez explicitly named the game “Watch_Dogs 2” even if we don’t have a confirmation on whether this will be the final title or not.
It’ll certainly be interesting to hear more about it in the coming months. At the moment we don’t know when it’ll be revealed, but E3 is coming next month, so that’s definitely a possibility.
