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.
So is this piece news or an editorial? The line is blurry.....
It's time to stop.
kind of hope not, Watch_Dogs was REALLY disappointing, although i could never finish it anyway, i got to this point where it would just glitch out and i couldn't lose the police at all, my rating wouldn't go down no matter how long or where i hid
Does that mean they will both cancel each other out and go away?
Guys, you don't realise, this is just the first phase. First you set up the individual franchises and then link them before they all meet up in WatchSins: Assemble. Then you introduce Rabbids, Ghost Recon before meeting again in WatchSins Age of Far Cry before splitting them all up in Civil War. Then you do a two parter game WatcSins: Beyond Good and Evil.
Warner Bros. take note, it really is that easy to universe build.
Ass Dogs confirmed for 2019 release!
I've never touched Watchdogs, so this is 'all Greek to me' (thankfully).
That explains why the modern segments are the least appealing parts of most Assassin's Creeds, they're in the same universe as Watch Dogs.
"Ubisoft should take the modern day portion of Assassin's Creed and launch it into the sun."
So where do Splinter Cell and Rayman fit in?
But where does Steep fit in? I mean theres some big hills in Origins and if covered in snow, well...
@Giygas_95 Rayman's the horrific recurring fever dream of Sam Fisher, who in turn is a product of Desmond Miles' overactive imagination — a result of stabbing way too many virtual people through the neck.
@ShogunRok Makes sense.
On another note, I hope we see another Splinter Cell at some point, and please Ubisoft, don't make it open world. At this point, a linear stealth game would be more unique than an open world one (we already have MGSV and Wildlands, both of which heavily feature stealth), and I would argue that Blacklist's linearity made it a better game.
