Watch Dogs Legion's 'play as anyone' mechanic is certainly an ambitious one, but it turns out the feature only goes so far. The buck stops with our canine friends, who won't be playable in the game.
Speaking with IGN's Brian Altano, creative director Clint Hocking said: "There are no dogs in the game because if you’re gonna play as anyone, we would have to be able to support playing as a dog, because that’s only fair." Of course, it is a bit of a tongue in cheek comment, but it does represent one step back for the franchise. Watch Dogs 2 featured dogs and even allowed you to pet them, but now its sequel won't contain any trace of them.
It's a shame we won't get to see a man's best friends roaming the streets of London, but these are the setbacks you have to take if you want to implement such a lofty mechanic. Will you miss the existence of dogs after Brexit? Play catch with yourself in the comments below.

they don't want you to play as a dog because the dog will be dead and it can be gory.so you know a lot of people these days will complain for no reason.word up son

So there are no animal in the city? cats, pigeon? Oh well, as long as I can play as grandma hacker it's okay I guess lol.
Why call it Watch Dogs then? I'm out.
I'd rather play with my own dog anyway.
Our of all the games I have seen over E3 I think Watchdogs 3 disappointed me the most.Ambitious yes..but id still much rather have Aiden Pierce back.
Stuff dogs, I was excited to play around as a pigeon.

@Jake3103 we're about due for a London Pigeon Sim. Ubisoft missing a trick here.
@roe I’d buy it.
No pet no buy! But for real, the real and more important question is... Are there cats?!
Well, I wonder to how many animals this extends to?
Not having animals in an open world like this dampens the experience.
