Insider: Ubisoft buried Watch Dogs after the failure of Legion

An insider under the nickname j0nathan, who often shares reliable information on games in the Assassin’s Creed series, said on social networks that Ubisoft abandoned the Watch Dogs franchise and will definitely not return to it in the near future.

A blogger has claimed that the Watch Dogs series is “dead and buried” after the failure of 2020’s Legion. He added that Ubisoft has canceled several projects in the franchise, including the “original battle royale.”

Watch Dogs: Legion at one time received moderate reviews from the press and average reviews from ordinary players. Ubisoft did not talk about sales of the open-world action game. According to analysts , in digital terms the number of copies sold during the month amounted to 1.9 million.

Support for Watch Dogs: Legion lasted just over a year. The game received a number of updates for online, a zombie mode, as well as a major DLC about Aiden Pearce, the hero of the first part.

In March of this year, work on a film adaptation of Watch Dogs was announced . The production is handled by New Regency, and Sophie Wilde (Two, Three, Demon Come!) is up for the lead role.
