It's no secret that we think Ubisoft should take the modern day portion of Assassin's Creed and launch it into the sun. Once again, the modern day segments in the recently released Assassin's Creed Origins are easily the weakest parts of the entire package, but they do at least hide one semi-interesting detail this time around.
As pointed out by those nerds over at Eurogamer, Origins hints that Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs are actually set in the same universe. There's a document that you can bring up during the modern day side of the game which features an image of Watch Dogs lead Aiden Pearce putting a bullet in Olivier Garneau -- a character who appeared in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's modern day guff.
In the original Watch Dogs, there was a side mission which saw you assassinate Garneau, so this was already a confirmed crossover, but Origins obviously pushes it further by digging it up again.
So, is Assassin's Creed set in the same universe as Watch Dogs? Honestly, we don't care enough to answer that question, so we'll leave it with you in the comments section below.
