Ubisoft has revealed in a recent interview that they have been working on Watch Dogs since 2009.
Senior producer Dominic Guay had this to say in an interview with Gaming Union:
“Actually we were many years into development when we heard of that show [Person of Interest] for the first time. Making a new IP like WATCH_DOGS is a long process and we started to craft our vision in early 2009.”
Watch Dogs amazed everyone when it was first announced at last year’s E3. It could become a new franchise for Ubisoft if it proves to be very popular.
The game is out November 19th in North America and November 22nd in Europe. It will be available for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360.
