Earlier today, Ubisoft confirmed on Twitter that a new Watch_Dogs game is in development and will be shown at E3 next week. There is a tweet that includes ten a second teaser with no audio. It seems that after a few years, a sequel to Watch_Dogs 2 game will be coming.
No platforms were confirmed yet. However, it will likely release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and the new Xbox. It could even release on Google Stadia. With more violent games such as Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole on Nintendo Switch, maybe there is hope for the third game in the entry to launch on Switch but maybe not at the same time as other platforms.
Watch_Dogs released on the Wii U with poor sales (as well as other Ubisoft titles) thus causing Ubisoft to restrict releasing games with the ESRB M rating on the platform until Nintendo entered the ninth generation with the Switch. Even still, Nintendo recently regained M rated (often 18 outside of the United States, Canada, and Latin America) games from Ubisoft, it didn’t start until 2018 with the two South Park games. Those games unlikely require a lot of horse power to run them at a good performance. Also in 2019, Japan received Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Cloud Version because it probably would not run very well on Switch. Japan also has a lot better bandwidth. Assassin’s Creed III Remastered was the latest mainline release on the platform.
Watch_Dog Legion may or may not release on Nintendo Switch. We will know more next week at E3 when Ubisoft reveals more. Maybe if Project Xcloud comes to Switch, it is possible that Watch_Dog Legion could get a cloud version but that is only wishful thanking.
