Yves Guillemot has talked more about the potential sequel, "Watch Dogs 2." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on June 18, the chief executive officer at Ubisoft admitted that he has no idea whether or not Aiden Pearce will be brought back in the second game of the series. He admitted that the reactions have been mixed so far for the protagonist. Some fans ended liking the characters from the story while the others weren't as positive. For the next game, the development will try to improve on that particular element.

Ubisoft is also trying to make the experience as a whole a lot better. The original "Watch Dogs" launched with several problems, the biggest of which is a loading glitch after apparently redeeming the rewards from the Uplay services. With new patch updates, the most of the problems from the first game should be resolved.

It is unknown when "Watch Dogs 2" is going to be released. The original title ended up being the fastest-selling game ever published by Ubisoft. The company could annualized the series the same way they did with the "Assassin's Creed" franchise. Or the other hand, they could also spread out the releases of "Watch Dogs" titles.

In addition to releasing "Watch Dogs" earlier this year, Ubisoft also had a busy E3 2014. The publisher provided the first real look at "Assassin's Creed Unity," which adds a new four-player cooperative element to the series. Furthermore, viewers of the press conference got to see an impressive gameplay demonstration of "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege."

Ubisoft released "Watch Dogs" on the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One systems last month on May 27 in North America. A Wii U version is also in development with a release date time frame set for later in the fall season.
