Watch Dogs 2 Won’t Take As Long As The First, Says Morin


Watch Dogs hasn’t even been released yet and Ubisoft is already talking about a sequel, Watch Dogs 2. Creative director Jonathan Morin believes it won’t take as long as the first title to develop.

While speaking with Eurogamer, Morin said:

Right now there is no such thing as a Watch Dogs 2.

It’s certainly not going to be the same amount of time if we ever embark on such a journey. A big part of it was defining whatever Watch Dogs is. Once you have that starting point, then what becomes interesting is what players want more of – what comes next?

Especially with the delay we have just been really concentrating on getting it [the original Watch Dogs] launched. After that we’ll see where it goes – I think Ubisoft is showing more and more that they’re willing to take the time for it to be right.

Morin was asked what a sequel to Watch Dogs would take, to which he replied:

I think we’re in a pretty good shape. I certainly like the idea of going deeper in the thematics – the hyperconnectivity and hacking in an entire city, controlling a city, monitoring everyone.

There’s stuff we discovered by making Watch Dogs that are interesting to pursue. But it’s up to players. [And] for me right now – it’s vacation.

Watch Dogs is set to release on May 27th for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One. A Wii U version will release later in the year, though at an unspecified time so far.

Let’s hope the first game lives up to our expectations, then we’ll see about a Watch Dogs 2. For now, check out the PS4 multiplayer gameplay that was shown off yesterday:
