It looks like we get to enjoy an early live stream announcement before E3, thanks to Ubisoft. The developers have been teasing a Watch Dogs 2 reveal for a while now, although Ubisoft remained mum about a sequel from the start. The company is set to unveil the new title in a live stream today.


UPDATE: During the livestream, Mike Mahardy (writer and editor at Gamespot) and Danny O’Dwyer discussed the recent trailer leak of Watch Dogs 2. Mike, who was able to get a first look at the game, explained the importance of Watch Dogs 2 in terms of the absence of Assassin’s Creed this year.

The game is set to launch on November 15, according to previous rumors that surfaced along with the leaked trailer. However, both Mike and Danny couldn’t say much. They could only nod along due to the NDA (non-disclosure agreement).

Watch Dogs 2 release date – March 2017

Fans from any part of the world can catch the live feed, thanks to GameSpot. The gaming website will be starting the stream at 9 a.m. PT today (June 8, Wednesday). For now, the stream says, “We’ll be Live Soon.”

While we believe we can’t expect a lot of revelations today, Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs 2 will make an appearance at E3 this year. Fans can get more details on the game during the studio’s press conference on June 13 at 1 p.m. PT.

Watch Dogs 2 will release this year on March 2017. The first Watch Dogs released in 2014. The game was a hit due to its open-world environment. The game, though, has faced criticism for being similar to GTA; however, the title stood out in the gaming community.

As Ubisoft has no plans to release an Assassin’s Creed game this year, Watch Dogs 2 is the most expected announcement from the developers. Here is GameSpot’s livestream below. You can read GameSpot’s review of the game as well.
