A sequel to Watch Dogs is in the works and will be hitting the market in 2017, according to Ubisoft latest financial results. The sequel has no solid release date but is expected to launch within the company’s next financial year.
Speaking on the fiscal 2016/2017 games lineup, Ubisoft plan to drop a “very high-quality line-up, including For Honor, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, [and] the next instalment of Watch Dogs.”
Ubisoft also announced there will be no Assassin’s Creed game inside 2016, with the upcoming motion picture based on the popular series hopefully keeping the fan base happy.
“This year, we are stepping back and re-examining the Assassin’s Creed franchise. As a result, we’ve decided that there will not be a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016,” the studio said in a statement.”
The first installment of Watch Dogs managed to sell 9 million copies to retail and while it didn’t lap up critical acclaim, it did alright on the market for Ubisoft to give it another swing.
As a whole, things are looking good for Ubisoft heading into this year and the next. With so many IPs on tap, making a sequel for either one is feasible and most likely profitable given how popular each one is.
