Darby McDevitt has provided a few comments in regards to the potential link between the recently-released “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” and the upcoming “Watch Dogs.” According to a report from Dealspwn on Dec. 12, the lead writer behind the story of the fourth main installment of the “Assassin’s Creed” series was asked if Juno could make an appearance in the new intellectual property.
Darby McDevitt responded by saying that the “Assassin’s Creed” series and the “Watch Dogs” video game aren’t connected. You can find screenshots of both aforesaid titles in the slideshow to the left of this article and his comments on the potential link below (courtesy of Dealspwn):
No, they are their own games in the Ubiverse. We like to put easter eggs like this in our games, but they are not literally connected.
Juno is a character that first appeared with the release of “Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.” She also had a role in “Assassin’s Creed: Revelations,” “Assassin’s Creed 3” and the recently-released “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.” The latest sequel also includes Easter Eggs hinting at “Watch Dogs.”
The Montreal branch of Ubisoft worked on both software products. “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” was released for the Nintendo Wii U, PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on Oct. 29. The same title was also made available for the PS4 on Nov. 15 while Xbox One players had to wait until Nov. 22 to get their hands on the sequel.
Ubisoft originally planned for “Watch Dogs” to come out at the same time. However, the new intellectual property got delayed until the second quarter of 2014.
