"Watch Dogs" has an enormous amount of momentum going for itself since it unveiled its second demo at the PS4 event, but one of its key developers has apparently left the team for the publisher of "Dragon Age 3."
According to a report from VideoGamer yesterday, Watch Dogs' lead game designer Jamie Keen has apparently left Ubisoft and joined up with EA, according to his online resume.
Keen also worked in a similar capacity on the hit game "Far Cry 3," and has seem to join EA for the development of the upcoming "Need for Speed" game that will hit the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4.
Hopefully the departure of Keen doesn't negatively affect the development and completion of "Watch Dogs."
Recently, "Watch Dogs" creative director Jonathan Morin talked about how gamers can stay connected to the game at all times.
"Watch Dogs is all about hyper-connectivity.
"To me, that has to mean all the time and anywhere. So yes, other people are out there all the time, when you don’t expect it.
"Whether you’re playing single-player or multiplayer, it’s happening. You’re saying asynchronous but it’s much more real-time than that," Morin said.
Morin then talked about how they plan on providing players with a world that allows them to do whatever they please.
"We’ll let players do pretty much what they want on those terms.
"And I think that what’s interesting is that since we’re creating a fantasy that you can progressively control all of Chicago and monitor everything… if you can do that… you need to ask yourself if Aiden Pearce can do all of this, can anybody else out there do the same thing?
"And the answer is absolutely yes," Morin said.
