Aiden May Not Make It To Watch Dogs 2

Posted June 23, 2014 by Ivan "Tech Curse" Mashkov in News

I’m not a big fan of Watch Dogs. It is a decent start for a video games series, however it does have a lot of bad points. One of those bad points is the protagonist himself, Aiden Pearce.  He was the worst character of the cast and felt very empty. It seems that he was meant to be a proxy for the player, however he just ended up a bad character in a very limited story, where players are given a single choice at the end of the game.

CVG (via VG 24/7) talked to Yves Guillemot, Ubisoft’s CEO, and we were able to get an idea of the changes will appear in the game’s sequel.

“For sure. We are also making sure the experience is better; at launch we had a number of small problems which have mostly been resolved now. We knew it would be polarising; some people loved the characters and some didn’t. It was difficult to please everybody with that character. Now, having seen the reaction, we know what we will do next to improve that.”

Guillemot didn’t reveal any specific changes that will be made when developing Watch Dogs 2, however we did reiterate Ubisoft’s commitment to extending diversity in its games.

“We are working on that. We want to spend more time on the worlds and characters in our games… you will see more and more of this at Ubisoft. We’ll try to be less like we have been in the past with some characters. We’ll try to extend more diversity.”
