The evidence that Ubisoft is working on a sequel to 2014 open-world action game Watch Dogs continues to mount. The first game sold more than 9 million copies, while its creative director has spoken previously about what he would like to do with the franchise next. However, Watch Dogs 2 remains officially unannounced. But now it appears even more likely that such a project is in development.

As spotted by Videogamer, a Ubisoft senior gameplay programmer has listed Watch Dogs 2 on their LinkedIn profile. This person also worked on the original Watch Dogs and its expansion, Bad Blood.

However, this resume--which has since been scrubbed clean of any mention of Watch Dogs 2--doesn't provide any additional information about the game, like when it might be released or on which platforms.

Ubisoft declined to comment.

If Watch Dogs 2 is indeed in development, one venue where Ubisoft might announce it is E3. The publisher has not announced its plans for this year's show yet, but it typically holds its press conference on the Tuesday of E3 week, which would be June 16. GameSpot will be reporting live from Los Angeles all week.
