Vikki Blake for PC Gamer:

This has been rumoured for some time, of course—we said as much when Ubisoft confirmed details of its upcoming E3 conference—plus we know a patch that revised the ending of Watch Dogs 2 included references to Brixton, a location in the UK capital. Kotaku is now reporting the rumour as true.

Not sure what’s more surprising: the setting or the fact it’s getting made at all.

This is the first I had heard of a third game and assumed — given how disappointed I understood Ubisoft to be with the sales of Watch Dogs 2 — we wouldn’t see one.

That said, I enjoyed the second game very much, particularly its take on Silicon Valley. Assuming the game is actually set in the UK, I hope the team is able to replicate that same experience for players once again.
