Probably the only interesting thing that happened at last year’s E3 (besides Usher of course) was the introduction of Ubisoft’s new IP Watch Dogs. The game was the talk of the show and is one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the year. Ubisoft is aware of this as well and has boosted the team behind Watch Dogs.
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot says the publisher gave its Montreal-based development team everything it needed so the game would live up to its ever-growing hype.
“E3 was a great revelation for Watch Dogs,” Guillemot told MCV.
“It gave us a chance to increase the whole project, giving the studio the chance to have bigger teams to help them achieve this goal they have.
“You always have great ideas, but you need enough people to bring it to life. After E3, we really made sure they had all the teams they needed and all the capacity they wanted to fulfil their dream.
“It’s an open world, that is well-adapted to what people want to play today. So there’s good potential for success.”
Watch Dogs will be coming to every main console including the Wii U as Ubisoft still backs Nintendo’s latest console.
“We think Wii U is a great machine. But it just has to sell more,” he said.
