New Watch Dogs 2 Ending Could Hint At Sequel And Its Location
Watch Dogs 3 could be on the cards.
Watch Dogs 2's latest update has introduced a new post-ending scene that could hint at a possible sequel, as well as its setting.
This article contains story spoilers for Watch Dogs 2.
Immediately after Watch Dogs 2's existing ending, there is now a short audio conversation between two unknown voices. A transcript of their discussion is below.
Man 1: How much of this is hyperbole? Has it really gone global?
Man 2: There are new Dedsec cells popping up everywhere. The Middle East, South America, Europe. And not just them. We can't even keep up with all the new hacktivist groups.
Man 1: Alright. Make the call.
Man 2: You Sure?
Man 1: Do it.
In itself, the discussion could only be a mild hint, if it is indeed a hint at all--but the most interesting part is the name of the audio file, which you can see in the video below, via YouTuber Frenzy.
The file is named 51.462014, -0.112504.wav. As Eurogamer reports, if you treat those figures as coordinates, the resulting location is London, UK.
If true, this wouldn't be the first time Ubisoft has laid clues in its games. Watch Dogs 2 also contains an Easter Egg that many believe to be a trailer for a new Ubisoft space game. The game is reportedly real, though Ubisoft has not commented officially.
Creative director Jonathan Morin said recently that Watch Dogs 2 has a number of Easter eggs to discover. Whether this new one is just an Easter egg or whether it really does let slip a potential sequel's location is not clear.
In a recent earnings call, Ubisoft said that Watch Dogs 2's launch was "not as dynamic as expected," but that "momentum [is] now positive" for the open-world game. In the UK, the hacking game's sales were down 80 percent on its predecessor, though it has consistently charted well since.
Ubisoft has previously stated that it was "incredibly happy with critics' and players' very positive reception of Watch Dogs 2, which should bolster support for the long-term success of the game." The company also said before the original Watch Dogs' launch that the franchise has the power to become a "longstanding brand."
