Is Watch Dogs 2 in Development?

Could a sequel to Ubisoft’s open world action game be in the works?

According to a listing on the LinkedIn profile of Ubisoft senior gameplay programmer, Julien Risse, the coder is currently working on Watch Dogs 2.  The listing has been removed since it was initially discovered by VideoGamer, but the evidence is still in Google’s cache.

Ubisoft has hinted at the possibility of a Watch Dogs 2 in the past, admitting that the flaws of the original would have to be addressed, such as giving players more freedom.

“This is quite a high ambition and will require us to develop technologies that we didn’t have for Watch Dogs, but this combined with fixing and refining what worked well is probably the way to go for Watch Dogs 2,”  Lionel Raynaud, vice president of creative at Ubisoft Montreal, stated back in September.
