Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs, which they revealed at E3 2012, will be available for a wide range of consoles, the publisher announced this evening. Watch Dogs is headed to PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PlayStation 4 (at launch).


Watch_Dogs takes place in a future where society is fully connected, and where a reliance on technology and communication networks puts individuals and corporations at the risk of exposure.


You’ll play as Aiden Pearce, a vigilante who can use his smartphone to hack into Chicago’s central operating system to control the city. Pearce will be able to take control of security cameras, traffic lights, public transportation and more.


The development of Watch_Dogs is being led by Ubisoft Montreal, with support from Ubisoft’s Bucharest, Paris, Quebec and Reflections studios.

  • Nice Person of Interest copy…

  • Curious to hear about Wii U functionality. The premise seems like it could lend itself to some cool uses of the gamepad.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Going to be interesting to see the difference between PS4 vs Wii U vs PS3,360 version here.
    Will PS4 had more graphical leap compared to the other 3? Will the Wii U utilized it’s game pad to it’s maximum?

  • Jrocy247

    That’s nice and all with Watch_dogs coming to Wii U, but that still doesn’t make up the fact with what they did for Rayman Legend, They left a permanent wound there.

    if they do it right the WiiU version will be awesome

  • Charlie

    Definitely agreeing with those who are interested in Wii U functionality. I could see motion controls being used creatively as well as using the controller as your cell phone. Too cool.

  • KingGunblader

    Wow, really Wii U? Awesome! Also PS3/4… they really don’t want anybody to miss out on this. Good news for us.

  • did anyone think about Assassin’s Creed when you see this game’s style like me ?

    • s07195

      Sure I said the same thing at the first gameplay trailer.

  • Cameron Ward

    I feel like this game should only come for the Wii U and PS4. not that i dont understand why its also coming to PS3 and 360 (depending on the price some people might not get a PS4 right away), but it seems like this game was made for a console that can use a gamepad or some kind of touch screen thing

    • PS4’s touch screen is small, It looks to be used for scrolling

    • MediaMindControl

      I don’t understand why PC is not mentioned. I mean it’s on everything else. I would get it for pc AND another system. If I could use my vita like a wii u game pad then ps4 or ps3 is the winner.

  • KingRuff

    This game is a true representation of the future.

    • MediaMindControl

      I like how far our ATM machine’s have come.
